Happy Lunar New Year 2014!


Here comes the year of the wooden horse! As we are just a few days away from ushering in this festive occasion, most would be busy preparing for the Chinese New Year - cleaning up the house, preparing the dishes, buying new clothes, praying and many others.  

This year, it would be my first year celebrating it without a very special person in my life. I would most definitely miss her deeply. I miss her warmth, her strength, her love and her passion for taking real good care of us, as a family. She is none other than my mom. One thing for sure, I would definitely miss her cooking. She used to make the BEST nasi dagang (a local Kelantanese steam red rice dish with coconut milk/santan, taken with curry chicken or fish and acar timun/pickles), amongst other dishes that she could easily cook up, like a pro chef!

Hope the year of the horse brings everyone great success and the best of health. Most importantly, cherish deeply the ones you loved the most for life can be that much more meaningful when you can share the happiness with them, no matter how near or far they may be. 

Enjoy your festive holidays and travel safe! GONG XI FA CAI lovelies.

    1. Yes, Rowena. Never a day goes by that I am not reminded of her, in one small way or another. Will always have that treasured memory of her, most definitely.
