Hey Valentine!

This is a super duper backdated entry - 7 days in exact!

Yong Teck and myself never celebrated V Day even during our dating days hence this day is nothing much - I am not expecting anything even a rose and he definitely not expecting anything from me cos I don't really like celebrating V Day to begin with..

He flew in from Singapore in the morning of 14th and surprised me with a stalk of rose made from chocolate which means it is edible! Hahaha... What did we do the whole day? He sleep of course while I play with our son.

This is how Zach loves grandma to carry him

Dinner was with the whole family at Mid Valley - so that all can spend quality time together before the 3 of us fly back to SG the next day.

One minute a happy boy

And he has grown all quiet - trying to fall asleep

The saddest person(s) of course will have to be my parents. I can feel that my mom wants to cry when bidding farewell to her grandson whom she has grown so fond of because Zach always chit chat with my parents. Zach too seems to understand it and he was super moody throughout the whole farewell process! Thankfully there is Skype..haha Zach's tech savvy!

Chinese New Year

This year mark a very special Chinese New Year for both the Tans and Khors. This year we have a new family member joining the celebration! Zachary Tan, our son, their first grandson, first nephew. Hee

Our son's first captured on camera smile

In order for Zach to grow closer to both set of family, me and hubby have agreed beforehand to alternate the celebration every year. This year will start with my family and next year will be his. It is a win-win situation.

Chinese New Year back at my place is always a grand affair! Mom will cook alot of dishes for offerings and subsequently it goes into our tummy.. ahh..well-fed! Then everyday we will head to restaurants for dinner. There are so many things to celebrate, grandpa's birthday, uncle's birthday, someone in the family won lotsa dough in gambling (in few Ks so I guess there are big losers as well).

The good food - I must learn how to make 'ngoh hiang' from my mom

Yummy steamboat dinner on 7th day of lunar new year

Mouth-watering pork rib at Crystal Crown Hotel

How can I forget the fireworks! My camera is not sophisticated enough to capture the beautiful fireworks but I am full of anticipation for Zach and hb to enjoy it next year..

This year will also be a very busy year for myself. I have to enjoy every moment watching Zach grow up, I have a wedding to plan, I have to plan for holidays for 3 of us..YES! Our first family holiday.. I can't wait.
What more can I ask for? I am a happy wife and a proud mommy to Zach.
