Goodbyes…

…are never easy. 😥

Mum and sis headed back home to Miri early this morning after spending three whole months in Perth here with us. I guess I didn’t mentally prepare myself enough for this day because it just felt so sh*tty after they left – leaving me with a void in my heart.

Spending the last three months together every single day was simply bliss. And I guess the happier you are together, the sadder you are when you’re apart. But, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. We’ve had one of the BEST times together this time around, I’d say. Despite the stupid argument that we had, Ma (I’m sorry!).

And I just feel so, so, so lucky and blessed to have you guys as my family. This is what love is all about. I experience it everyday with you guys around and I see it in your eyes when you look at Naomi too. Nini, you are like a second mum to Naomi and I hope that this will never change. 🙂 (Well, you are her Godmother after all, hahaha!)

Missing you guys badly! Take care! Until we meet again… X

Happy Chinese New Year!

新年快乐!! Gong hei fatt choy!!

Today’s the third day of the Chinese/Lunar New Year and it’s yet another one of those crazy hot summer days in Perth. Today’s the fourth consecutive day of the mercury hitting the 40-degree-Celsius mark! 😦

Chinese New Year in Perth this year has been great! Hehehehe… ‘Cos we have Naomi, mum and sis celebrating this occasion with us this year! Woohoo! We had an amazing reunion dinner on CNY eve at our place with heaps and heaps of delicious home-cooked food and the great company of our relatives in Perth. Mum and sis made lots of yummy CNY goodies (biscuits, cakes, agar-agar, etc.) in addition to the ones they brought over (keropok and my aunt’s homemade acar!!!!) and they were sooooo good…… Mr S was so excited that he kept playing CNY songs at work and at home lol!!! We also went bai nian on the first day of CNY despite the crazy heat hahahaha!

All in all, the atmosphere is SO good this year and I’m so happy! 😀

Here’s to wishing everyone a prosperous new year ahead! 猴 yeah, 猴 yeah, 猴猴 yeah!!!
