恭喜發財 (Happy Chinese New Year)!!! As per our CNY tradition, I took a gander around the flower market (twice) to try and inhale as much good luck as my bulbous nose can take and pick some pretty bloooooooooms for our house. Not sure if you can tell from the photos but the CNY flower market is packed like sardines and there is actually a walking speed limit of 5km/h. It's the only OMFG-crowded situation I will willingly place myself in, but anything to get constant whiffs of the Narcissus plants which basically smell like Tempo tissue on steroids. MMMMMmmmMMMmmmmm!

Contrary to everyone and their mom wearing red, I spent majority of my 5 day CNY weekend wearing black (what's new). I'm pretty much addicted to this bb-sized, 20 year old Prada backpack because there's nothing better than the convenience of two fully functioning hands. I also spent my 5 day sleeping, eating mountains of turnip cake, watching mind-numbing amounts of TV and getting sucked into the black hole that is our couch.

Hope everyone has an aweeeessssome year of the snake! Eat lots, be happy lots and remember not to cut your hair or count your lai see for the first 15 days!
