P2140246My babies gathered together once again!

Finally I finished my exams last Friday and went back to my hometown on Saturday. HOLIDAYS! I had a Chinese New Year reunion dinner with my dad's family on Saturday night and had a gathering with my mom's family today. I felt a bit awkward at first because I had skipped these ritual gatherings for 3 years. Cousins of mine who already got married and have children are no longer close with me (well it's not like I'm close to any lol) and I have this little weird jealousy feeling towards their children (aka my nieces and nephews)! Strange, right? Plus, they don't even recognize me...
But I enjoy my time collecting the ang paos (red packets filled with $) haha!


Happy Valentine's day!

I couldn’t really feel the Valentine’s mood this year, because I didn’t see any of my friends and celebrated Chinese New Year instead so no chocolates :/ Yet. Perhaps. If there is, I need to get rid of my flu first! Yes, I got a bit of flu again due to the stressful exams.

Nevertheless, I hope all of you had a wonderful day with the loved ones!


xo, Jo

I'm so glad to see you had a great New Year even though it was kind of awkward. It's funny, I feel the same way at family gatherings. There is usually a couple years in between seeing my cousins and it's strange when they have really young children. The kids don't know me or remember me and act like I'm a stranger. It's kind of unsettling. Lol.

I hope you have a great week as well!
