Chinese New Year 2010

On the 5th day of the Chinese New Year (Feb 18), my friends and I met up for our so called "annual gathering" This year's was a little late....many of the gals have came and gone! Anyhow, we have a special guest this year...Mary Cheah.... flew in from Vancouver to attend her aunt's 80th birthday celebration.
We had an enjoyable lunch at the Indulgence Restaurant, Ipoh - a treat from Micheal Lee.


A day earlier, I met up with two members of NNC who happened to be visiting their families in Ipoh - Paul and Ann. Ann is a very new member and she is very enthusiastic about what we do in the group. Incidentally, Paul and Ann have signed up for the current 'blue' pincushion exchange co-ordinated by Usha and Paul has been assigned to send to Ann.....*grin*


This Chinese New Year is one of the hottest I've experienced - the heat and humidity makes one want to stay indoors! There has not been any rain since the first day - 14th February - of the celebration!
This afternoon DD went back to campus as classes will resume on Monday and I have to go back to work on Monday, too.........:(

OOOOO I so miss that part of the world. We used to live in Sembawang, Singapore and frequently went over the causeway for celebrations. Chinese New Year is especially good. Gong Xi Fa Chi
