.::. CNY Day 3 .::.

I was hoping that I can go out, because I sensed that Mummy is going to her friend's place for a gathering. She even made oven-baked chicken which smells so nice, but I didn't get any!

But at least, she brought me! She came to brush me with some powder and got me dressed up in this new red checkered shirt she got in Bangkok last December. She has been planning to let me wear it on CNY, because it's red.

But, it wasn't meant to be. Guess why?

Because the shirt was way too small. It's gaping open, 2 inches apart! There's no way I can wear this!

See? The gap is so huge! And it felt like something's tugging me.

I realised that my shirt matched Daddy's shirt! And of course, I was really excited and went over to give him a good lick.

So I had to wear my SuperDog mini-tee again. It's mini but at least it FITS.

I made it to Mummy's friend's place looking good as usual. And I was quite excited when everyone played with me.

So much that I became alittle tired. *yawns.

I snuggled in Daddy's arms and got comfortable.

And had a good rest there. It feels almost as good as Mummy's lap!

Okay, Mummy did feed me before they started anything. But, I would have liked to join in and actually eat with them or try their food!

They 'lao' yusheng, which is this Chinese New Year tradition. There's carrots and some (unknown) shreded vegetables which they'll mix with various sweet sauce and crackers, topped with smoked salmon or even jelly fish. Everytime you pour a sauce in, you must say a 'nice' chinese idiom. Everyone will then gather around it and mix everything up using their chopsticks. The higher you lift the chopsticks, the better it is! Sometimes it gets messy and things get dropped out of the plate. Sadly, none dropped on the floor.

I stayed below the table while they ate. It was pot-luck and they cooked waaaayyy too much! There's only 8 people but you can feed like 20 people with these food! I was glad to help them finish up their food, but Mummy wouldn't let me - she says she doesn't want me to develop a bad habit. But what's so bad about HELPING to finish up unfinished food?

I went around getting everyone's attention by licking them. Yet none of them bothered about me. I think they must be too engrossed in their meal, just like how I'll ignore everyone and everything while I'm eating.

They played cards through the night and I was in Mummy's or Daddy's arms or playing with her friends.

Oh, and I didn't manage to hold my pee for 9 hours. In fact, I pee-ed on the floor after like 5 hours. I mean, my pee tray is at home right? Luckily, I didn't get scolded, Mummy just rushed to clean up my pee with toilet paper and wet tissues.

I enjoyed Chinese New Year, because I got to go out and spend the whole day with Mummy!

When's the next Chinese New Year?
