Valentine New Year

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Let me wish each of everyone of you a very Happy Birthday as today is 7th day of Chinese New Year known as Rénrì (人日, the common man's birthday) is the day when everyone grows one year older. In some overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asia, such as Malaysia and Singapore, it is also the day when tossed raw fish salad, yusheng, is eaten for continued wealth and prosperity.


I wasn’t able to update my blog as frequent since I was so tied up with work after the second day of CNY. My company laptop is corrupted and have to wait for almost a week before I could get a replacement. This year is rather special as Valentine Day fall during Chinese New Year week and this year my Chinese New Year Celebration was a bit different. Today I doesn’t feel like writing too much. So could I tell my stories through my photos?

Here’s a snippet of Valentine wishes from Thomas to me!

"As the hours of night have came to pass,
The sweet serenade whisper words of joy,
Though the weary body is evident,
However the beating heart remained steadfast,
Ever so longing for the warm caress of the tender touch,
Reminiscent of the scent that draw from the purest light,
Moist from the still clear waters of the Everglades,
The distance had caught the heart aching from being apart,
Being in love with you and still crazy over you has been my greatest adventure and journey which i wish would span over centuries, so i could continue on the journey and adventure with you in the following lifetime."
Happy Valentine
Cindy Tong

Yesterday we quarrel over something but I’m not going to brag about it here! To me being together is the willingness to tolerate with each other and willing to accept our partners bad habits or their bad attitude.

To my darling, thank you for loving me each day and bring me joy each day. Thought we quarrel at times but that’s the elements that bring us closer by getting to know each other a little more. Though Valentine Day has passed but it’s not the only day to tell someone how much you love them. and so Happy Valentine Day Thomas hope to spend Valentine Day with you next year!

I’m still a happy girl today..meeting up with Thomas for a good dine out later! This is how i celebrate my Valentine New Year what about you all? Let me know how you celebrate these big celebration alright? XOXO
