Chinese New Year 2014: Day 3

If you're wondering why there's no post about day 2, well that's because I woke up at 3 something during chu 2 and laze around on the couch before departing to my grandpa's house where I spent the whole night frying nuggets and french fries and popcorn chicken while the rest of my relatives bbq-ed. Now you know why.

Chu 3 was a Sunday, so went to church early in the morning again. Had a pleasant surprise when I coincidentally wore the same color (blue) with Sarah darling!
Pardon my sleepy face. It's still morning okay lololl.
Sunday blues ❤
After church went to my 3rd aunt's house at Butterworth.
 My sis with le dog 丝丝 (Si Si) which we proceeded to give a very pasar name, Ah See hahaha

Me and my niece, Lynn!
She very adorable hor! But also made my arms sore after hugging her for awhile hehe.

Debra and me ❤

And then her sis took out her Instax Camera and we started taking pichas like nobody's business.

Me and the birthday girl, Esther. Ish I look so dark beside her D:

 Omma, sis and I ❤

 Not to forgot a picture of all the cousins present ❤

 My relatives and me on the ferry on the way back to Penang island.

Then we went to 庙会  (Chinese New Year Cultural And Heritage Celebration – 2014 Year of the Horse)

The Chinese New Year Cultural And Heritage Celebration – 2014 Year of the Horse was held at the Heritage Enclave located at Bishop Street, Penang Street, King Street area in George Town, an UNESCO’s World Heritage Site to promote the Chinese's culture.

The highlights included Dragon Dance and Lion Dance on Stilts, 12 Chinese Zodiac fancy lantern exhibition, Chinese Classical Songs and New Year songs performances, traditional Malay Kompang and Gamelan performances, traditional dances, Chinese orchestra and traditional music, grand fireworks display, and martial arts performances such as Wushu, Tai Chi, Wing Chun Kungfu and Shao Lin Kungfu.

 Hi :D

 Okay to be honest I also don't know what are the words on the arch hehehe
Something related to horse, I guess.

 My zodiac the Dog!
Too many people taking pictures with it so I didn't get a chance to snap a pic with it :(

My mom with her zodiac!
Now you would probably know how old is she hahahaha

 Was waiting to see Chief Minister of Penang, Lim Guan Eng when this kid kept staring at me.
I was silently cursing his dad for blocking my vision, I think :P

 Hi we are the glasses duo lololl

And then Mr. Lim Guan Eng came, and left.
Wtf the crowd was crazy everybody was trying to shake hands and snap a pic with him I literally got shove out of the way.

 This is, erm, the sakura pond? I think?

 Us with some random deco beside the street.
 Looking at different cameras. 我们的默契在哪里?!

 Ahh much more better ❤

 On the way to dinner saw this super cute mini mint green sports car !
Damn adorbs leh ❤

Dinner was at Weld Quay's 大树下 restaurant (literally translated as Under the Tree)
 Was fascinated by the interior of the restaurant.

Me, Sis, Deirdre, Si Wen and Debra.

From the back: Si Wen, Me, Deirdre, Sis, Debra and Ying Ying.

 The food arrived in less than 20 minutes, which was considered fast as the place was full.
Quite delish also, especially the tomyam soup. 

But the service for the drinks was terrible. They did not even acknowledge our existence.
We were eating already without drinks while the table beside us, whose food had not arrive was having their second round of drinks!

Enough of complaining. Ending this post of a picture of us youngsters during chu2. Loving the pose Ivane taught us hahaha.
My mom pretending to be one of us. Not that she needs to pretend anyway.
