Chinese New Year in IPOH

ON THE VERY FIRST MORNING of CNY, we went over to mama's place to give our greetings, "gong xi gong xi, sun leen fai lok, sun tai keen hong" ... (wishing you happiness and good health)

After which, the best time for the kids were the receiving of ang paus....from the parents, aunties and uncles...

presenting of ang pow to Daniel
from sister, Amy..

Daniel scratching his head
thinking of what to say..
before he could receive his ang pow

andy already succeeded in receiving..

AA in full smiles...
