Happy chinese New Year

I love Chinese New Year it's always so much fun. Our local shops provide so much entertainment with calligraphy demonstrations, lion and dragon dancing, ice carvings and cooking demonstrations just to name a few.

Jero really didn't want to play dress ups but yet again I twisted his arm. I got the giggles half way through cause some of the shots were so corny. Jero was saying this is worse than getting your wedding photos taken.





After a very entertaining afternoon we went for dinner at a local Chinese restaurant. We ordered Singapore noodles and garlic chicken. Then went home so full and very happy. Happy Chinese New year everyone I hope the year of the Dragon brings you everything your heart desires.

PS My new year wish is that all bloggers would pretty pretty please remove Word Verification from comments (I promise you won't get spam) and I think the Dragon would be happy too!
