It is an eventful weekend.

The Chinese New Year Festival has began.....









We also have the famous annual rugby seven keeping Wellington busy and colourful. It is an event where fancy dressing meets sport. I couldn't see how dazzling costumes are related to SEVEN but I guess it is a culture adapted since god knows when. Those rugby enthusiasts and the attention grabbing bunch definitely went all the way to impress......

1 2 3 4 5 Things I Love

LB gave me homework on 1 2 3 4 5 things I love. Thought I better hand in the assignment before the Emperor gets ticked off and order to hunt my head down. Hehehe

Name 1 thing you do everyday:
• Eat

Name 2 things you wish you could learn:
• To play violin
• To be more tactful in dealing with people

Name 3 things that remind you of your childhood:
• Bombing off firecrackers in longkang
• The rubber rope game “zero-point”
• Donald Duck

Name 4 things you love to eat but rarely do:
• Rice dumplings 粽子(Zhong Zi)
• Stir fry durian’s flowers with belachan! (Haven’t had that for more than a decade!)
• Durian!!
• Fried oysters with egg 蠔仔煎

Name 5 things that make you feel good:
• Knowing it’s a Friday/Saturday evening, and there is no bedtime or alarm clock in the morning. (hehehe, garfield LB!)
• Food, lots of fooooood!
• Holiday particularly loooooonnnng holiday
• When people I love are happy
• When weighing myself, the bathroom scale gives me the magic figures.

Okie dokie, job done. Goodnight!






Pigi still doesn't want to go to bed. He wants to play firecrackers. How naughty! CNY not yet arrived already he wants to scare the craps out of Vell. (>_<)!

I'm surprised, didn't see that much asian while I was in Hamilton! I wonder the asian makeup how many percent of population in Wind City? thks!

Doreen said...

l b:
What? You actually already arranged your Mafia men to get me? Lucky I did the assignment last night then. Phew! No mess with the Emperor man!

I guess those Tyrollean folks are locals. Hehehe

liwan:
Me too....I have missed for so many years and this year too. :(

Dutch maid you think? Emm...she does look like those on the condensed milk can. Hehehehe. No cny celebration there in Brisbane meh?

slurp:
Yeah, not much asian in Hamilton. It is a very small place. Not sure about the asian population in Wellington, but I could easily spot one on the street. Auckland and Christchurch definitely have higher population.
