Photography With Beautiful Backdrops

We had a great family gathering few days ago. It was a great and wonderful gathering of many family members, some of them we have not seen for many years. Some returned from other states and some have travelled all the way from overseas. They travelled back to our hometown to celebrate the 80th birthday dinner party of my grand uncle.

This dinner party was first initiated a year ago by my grand uncle’s youngest daughter who stays with him and she contacted all her siblings through their Whatsapp family group. From then on, everyone contributed ideas and suggestions to their youngest sister, the organizer. Then everyone made plans to take leave to return to their family home. They didn’t want to hold the dinner party in a restaurant because inter-mingling and time will be restricted. They made plans to hold it in their own garden which is big enough to accommodate all the family members plus some very close friends of their family.


On the day of the birthday party, my grand uncle and aunt were beaming with joy. There were happy greetings and hugging when the guests arrived. Family backdrops for party photography were put up in advance at different parts of their garden. I was told that one of the siblings bought these backdrops online and had them sent to his family home well ahead of the big day.


Everyone was happy to see one another and knowing that it was not often we get to do so. Everyone took the opportunity to have their photos taken together.  In fact, we made sure we had all the backdrop party photography pictures in the background of our photos. It was a beautiful celebration for the birthday boy and also for all who attended. We will treasure the sweet memories of this great event for many years to come.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
