In two days we celebrate the Chinese New Year, which is on 7 Feb this year! We're very busy spring-cleaning, decorating, cooking, and getting ready for all the visiting and visitors and all the merry-making! We have the tradition of getting new clothes (from top to toe) for everyone, mostly in shades of red, and also the giving of Hong Baos (red packets or gifts of cash) to children and the not yet married. So you can imagine how excited the children are, they get a windfall, but we still manage to get most of it into their college funds!
In cosmopolitan Singapore we live very modern lives so this is a great time to get closer to our roots and enjoy lots of family time with our extended families.
So, a short post today, just completed this layout, almost similar to the last one, and still of Great Falls Park!! Haha, just couldn't pass up on the lovely photos! And that gave me a thought, I should have worked them as double page layouts! Well, next up! ;)
