~ Counting down to Lunar New Year! Prosperity Horse awaits us! ~

Whenever we welcomed the New Year, it's also time to countdown to Chinese New Year. Yes! There's a lot to do and we burnt a big hole in our pockets but the entire process was filled with joy. Here's our daily photo capture during our 19 days of countdown to CNY. 

Day 19 - Spring Cleaning

Mommy used to be the sole fighter to clean the house. As the children gets older and independent, an extra pair of hands definitely helps! Spring Cleaning is more FUN and less WORK when it involves the entire family. 

Day 18 - CNY stalls in the Heartlands

From Toa Payoh, Ang Mo Kio, Kovan to Bedok and Hougang. We have been bringing our children around the various neighbourhood estates during the weekends. Apart from buying the CNY decorations for our home, we get to experience the festive season. 

Day 17 - Chinese New Year Decorations

Sprinkle of RED around our home with the CNY decorations!

Day 16 - Festive Flowers 

Floral and plant pots are another popular items on sale during CNY period. We enjoyed visiting the nursery and bring a pot back to beautify our home and for Good Luck. 

Day 15 - CNY Greeting Cards

With the advancement of technology, many has decided to go for e-greetings. Hence, it's heart warming to receive traditional CNY Greeting cards from our friends. 

Day 14 - CNY Goodies

Chinese New Year is never complete without delicious CNY goodies! Pineapple tarts, love letters, Bak Kua, almond cookies, Kueh Bangkit, Kueh Lapis and more have arrived! It's hard to reduce our waistline during this festive period!

Day 13 - Rice 

Every year, we always make sure our rice pot is filled with rice for Prosperity and Wealth.

Day 12 - God of Fortune

Everyone loves to invite the God of Fortune to their homes. Hubby bought one Fortune God ornament for his car to bring wealth and luck! HUAT AH!

Day 11 - Festive Bazaar at Chinatown

It's our family's little tradition to bring our children and have a walk around Chinatown during the festive season. Despite the crowd and heat, it was a yearly experience that we do not want to miss. Crazy as it may sound but squeezing our way through the festive market, grabbing free snack samples and checking out this year's CNY theme and goods brings lots of excitement and fun.
