Happy new year

Today marks the first day of the Year of the Ox. We arrived at our parent's house this morning to find that my brothers have already arrived ahead of us. Everyone was dressed in auspicious colours. Even mum, who normally shun bright colours, wore a red shirt. I couldn't find anything very colourful in my wardrobe, so I put on an olive coloured tee and white jeans.

The little ones always look adorable in traditional costumes. Here's my niece, munching her way through the day.

My nieces and nephew in their colourful best.

Soon, my cousins arrived with their kids in tow. One cousin has three young sons. Another one brought a son and daughter. The energetic bunch were soon lavishing all their attention on Rusty. Poor little doggie. I think he's happier being left alone.

We left around noon. I'm sure many relatives will come visiting throughout the day but I kinda like being back at our apartment where it is peaceful and quiet.
