I'm Not Fretting Yet

How have you been preparing your Chinese New Year? I enjoyed mine a lot mostly as a child. Now the anticipation is not like when I was young. Perhaps it has a lot to do with commitments, preparations and also not to forget digging up more cash to pay for lots of new things.

As a child, we always will have at least 2-4 sets of new clothes for each day of celebration. Then we'd also have new set of PJs, and sleep on new set of sheets. Now that we have grown up, we take care of the kids' needs first and worry about ourselves later. It is less than a week to Lunar New Year and I am not even fretting about my own new year clothes! It was different before when we had no kids.

My girls are excited about their new year clothes of course. Lea tried on the Chinese dress and showed me how it looked before I send it for a quick rinse to make sure it's clean.

I have totally lost the CNY mood. I will be wearing old clothes this year and I will keep my hair uncut as a protest against the price increase of everything. I hope we can have this kind of nation wide protest. Unfortunately, we Malaysians and Singaporeans cannot cooperate in this kind of matter. We are so different from the Westerners.

She is cute with her pose, the red dress just fit her well for the season. As a mother, i am not fretting about new clothes for myself too. But i still like CNY very much :)
