Here in Singapore, we toss and eat 'yusheng', a raw fish and vegetable salad that signifies abundance, prosperity and vigour. I've had several sessions of yusheng already and the results are showing around the waist.
Day 2 was spent at home resting, followed by a trip to Punggol Beach in the evening.
Day 3 was reserved for meeting up with old friends and distributing hong baos (lucky money) to their kids.
Day 4 was spent receiving guests (YK and SK's friends) at home. When the kids were younger, I used to bring them around to visit older relatives. Now the time has come for me to stay at home to welcome these young visitors. I can't help but feel like an old aunty!
After the 5-day break (and non-stop eating), I am quite happy to be back at work. We have a couple more visits to do this weekend before we round up the celebrations. Then it is time to work on the jelly belly!
