Lunar New Year

It was Lunar New Year today, with 2012 being the year of the dragon.
I spent the day visiting my extended family and wishing them all the best for the year to come (earning some red envelopes along the way). However, most of my New Years greetings had been done yesterday, when I went to my uncle's house to wish my dad's side of the family a Happy (Lunar) New Year. It was a great day, with everyone bringing a plate, or two, of food along. Once again, I was too busy stuffing my face to take any photos, but let me tell you, it was delicious!
After finishing dinner, the whole family sat down to play "Bau Cua Ca Cop," a gambling game involving three dice (with 6 images of a certain item on each) and a board (with six pictures corresponding to those on the dices). When the game finally ended - probably from everyone exceeding past their betting limits - we all sat down to watch a certain TV show on the SBS channel (;
Overall the day was wonderful, and I don't think I'd have had it any other way. xx
