I hope this is not too late... but here's wishing EVERYONE a Happy, Prosperous, & BLESSED Lunar New Year!!!
This picture was taken on the 1st day of CNY (23rd Jan 2012), but I only managed to sort through my pictures this morning, hehe...
Natalie was wearing a pretty traditional "princess" dress which I bought during my last trip to Taiwan. And Hans, was wearing (an almost) traditional Chinese costume which I bought 1 or 2 days before CNY. It was actually meant for him to wear to school, as he said his friends will be wearing traditional costumes, & he wants it as well.
Well, I couldnt find one his size, & eventually found this "acceptable" piece from Kiddy Palace. However, he actually refuses to wear this to school, as it's not a matching "set" with the pants... *sigh*... This is not something I'd have naturally bought for him in the first place.
Anyways, he wore it during the 1st day of CNY, & that's good enough for me :)
He should have written them diagonally, so that they can be put up in a "diamond" shape facing up... but nevertheless, I pasted them up on the wall. And, he was really proud that his work is on display at a prominent place in our home :)
Hope this blog post finds you all well, fed, & all geared up to receive all the blessings 2012 has in store for you ^^
