The year of the Water Dragon


Celebrating Chinese New Year was something I look forward to every year when I was younger. I used to head back to Seremban, where my grandma used to live and all of us (cousins, aunties & uncles) would spend quality time with one another.

After my grandma passed away, we rarely saw one another. Chinese New Year wasn't the same as it used to be. We grew older each year and every single Chinese New Year that came, felt like it was just another public holiday that passed by.

This year was different. It was as if a fog has lifted and everyone in my family worked hard to spend some time together, making this year count.

I think this is the only group photo we have. My relatives from my mom's side

It was a pretty busy 5 days really. Reunions from both sides of the family, friend's birthday, relatives house visiting, ang paus :P and food! However, as busy as it may have been, it actually made me realize that I do have a lot in my life to be grateful for and to be able to celebrate Chinese New Year every year.

I guess we need some form of a reminder once in a while to remind us of how lucky we are and to value those that has touched our lives one way or another.


The year of the Dragon is considered the luckiest year in the Chinese Zodiac.
May this be true to all of you!
