Ramble on Angpow, Going Broke and again, Newborn

Wei, wei, wei, Chinese New Year is just around the corner. What do you think of my new CNY banner? Took me hours to complete it, so you better say something nice about it (*sticking out tongue*). This is the first time too I’ve posted up a pic of me with my glasses on. Yea, I am long sighted. The vain me wore contact lenses but at home, I will be looking like an Ah Soh. So Bernard, I’ve granted your wish. Better give me an Angpow cos I am younger than you. I don’t care!

Since CNY is just 2 weeks away, the Bank near to where I was working was pack with Chinese nation who started to change new $note$ to usher the upcoming Chinese New Year. Upon seeing the crowd, the excited me planning to do so one of these days before the new $note$ ran out of stock. Which usually happen la.

While I was counting how much $note$ to change, I’ve notice a new number of family addition this year. Which means more angpow had to prepare.

Remember my nephew, Jonathan?

This bundle joy of my sister has grown so big. Very chubby and I love to hug this little teddy bear.

And another bundle joy of BIL (aka Hubby’s brother) baby was born sometime last month. I’ve captured something that I really like during the baby’s full moon.

In the background was SIL (not baby’s mother!) holding onto the Baby while capturing images of BIL paying respect to their ancestors announcing the arrival of the newborn.

It’s the baby turn now to give 3 bows (asif!).

Oh, I forgot to intro. Everybody, say hi to Shao Wei!

Shao Wei, say hi to everybody.

These two are the new addition from my immediate family. Not forgetting, one of my cousin sister too had a newborn baby. And my other cousin brother. And another cousin brother is getting married on Chor Yat. Gosh! I’m going broke again. Help!

    Getting married, preparing for Chinese New Year … When you sum everything up it’s equivalent to money.
