Chinese New Year is tradition, festivities, noise, colours and celebrating the fullness of life in all its glory. And because a picture is worth a thousand words, here's several thousand words' worth of what Chinese New Year is like in our household.
A big part of Chinese New Year in our household revolves around food, largely thanks to the fantastic culinary skills of my mother-in-law. It involves feasting so major that it is customary to stagger away from the dining table feeling extremely tight around the waist.
The pictures are but merely a small sample size of the spread that was offered during the first three days at my mum-in-law's place. Other unsung, unphotographed delicacies included butterfly prawns, yam basket, kung ba pao, lotus root soup and stir-fried bamboo shoots, all greedily lapped up before the idea to take photographs could surface.
A rip-roaring Year of the Tiger to all my readers and may your plate of blessings never be empty!
