Our Christmas

We had a busy time prepping for Christmas this year (or should I say last year), which should be pretty evident from the obvious lack of blogging between Thanksgiving and now. :D My sis and her family celebrated Christmas with us and so did my in-laws (Keith’s parents). We had an awesome time, albeit exhausting for everyone I’m sure […]

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Happy Chinese New Year! Although I’m just half Chinese (from my mum’s side), I’ve always celebrated Chinese New Year along with […]
