It's Reunion Dinner time to usher in the Niu Year!

The whole gang is in mom's place for Reunion Dinner and it's a loud and rowdy affair.


This year the abalone was a gift from fourth aunt. So we didn't have to use our petrol station points to redeem a can of abalone. Never mind, we can save the points for next year's meal.


We also welcomed a new member to the family, my sister-in-law, Trisha, who has been promoted to the rank of Ah Sahm (what the kids will call her from now on, instead of Trisha chie-chie).


The newly-weds were thoroughly briefed about their ang pow duties, and how in this family, we don't practise the First Year Exemption custom here.


My second brother and I also loudly and jokingly declared there is going rate for the red packets for our kids, a "guideline" which we made up on the spot.


Above the din and laughter, Joy could be heard singing "Sing tooganna, sing tooganna, sing tooganna, to King of Kings!"


We were a little busy stopping Faith from yanking down the hanging Chinese New Year decorations, to teach Joy how to pronounce "Hosanna".


May you all have a noisy, merry, properous and, joyful Year of the Ox!
