Project Life 2015 – Week 8 Celebrating Chinese New Year


Woke up to find her 压岁钱 under her pillows on the first day of CNY

Last week, we celebrated the Lunar New Year where the first and second days falls on the 19th and 20th of February.

Besides eating, there was more eating. From reunion dinner with my in laws at Crystal Jade, to new year goodies like pineapple tarts, bah kwa and what have you. And of course, theere unending lunch at Grandma’s place which reminds of the magic porridge pot. Except in our case,  the dining table is always replenished with her specialty dishes like ngor hiang, chap chay soup and pig stomach soup, leek with roast meat and tou gua  and also Hokkien mee just to name a few.

With everyone’s busy schedule, we hardly get to see our relatives so it’s during occasions like these where we can all gather at Grandma’s place to catch up on each other’s lives. And it’s especially so exciting to hear good news from my cousin as I’ll be auntie to twins soon! #SG50babies!


Project Life 2015 – Week 8!

Since we had such a long break for the Chinese New Year, I took the opportunity to get started on my Project Life for 2015. Yes, I’m cheating and am working backwards from week 8 for this year. I just hope to have the staying power and not lag behind too far behind this time.

So here’s sharing the highlights from Week 8 of Project Life 2015.


We went to the annual River Hongbao on the opening night last Tuesday

We took lots and lots of photos too

I kept the Uncle Ringo stored value card after our visit to the River Hongbao last week and added it to this week’s layout too. To see other interesting items you can add to your Project Life layouts, you can check out this post too.

Feeling a sense of accomplishment at my completed Week 8 for Project Life. And now to work back backwards including catching up on where I left up last November….

If you’re planning to head down to the River Hongbao this week, so see what you can expect and some highlights from this post.


And from my family to yours, have a very Blessed and Prosperous New Year and most importantly, stay yang (羊) and healthy 🙂
