Why are we not given 15 days of holiday celebrating the most important cultural festival for Chinese? Why modern days responsibility caused the 15 days celebration limited to only two official days off? Mentally, physically I still not prepare to start working on the 9th day of Chinese New Year. Official holiday should last till 15th day of CNY, it SHOULD.

My mom is the eldest among her brother and sister, hence, all my uncles and aunties will pay us visit on the 1st day of CNY every year. All will be doing lunch, gamble, chit-chating,  etc, till late. Unlike the normal Chinese family will most probably doing Chinese, we do Malay style instead. We do have the 1 Malaysia concept way before the campaign came out, NO?

Nasi Dalca | Spicy Squid Curry| Aromatic Fish Curry with Lady Fingers

Delicious Malay Style Fried Chicken | Aubergine Curry | Cucumber Salad

How much this will cost at normal Malay stall?

We ordered portion for 30 but what available can easily feed 50 of us. Some did lunch + dinner, no kidding.

Our little apartment turned so lively with fun and enjoyment when 30 of old, young, big, small squeezed in with all sort of activities.

Pictures session

The pictures below purposely edited to keep the veterans anonymous and not showing the important activity went on clearly. Since 1st day of CNY was also Valentine day, this old elder lovely couple pound all the young couple with the only bouquet of roses for the day.

You who at Bermuda should be able to identify everyone right?
