Gong Xi Fa Cai

Well, another CNY's rolling around, and this year it's Gong Xi Fa Cai (Mandarin), not Gung Hei Fat Choy (Cantonese) for us. CNY in Hong Kong was also renowned for nasty cold and rainy weather, whereas here it's, you know, still Singapore. Just like at Christmas time, the malls start working up for it pretty early, and these festive photos were taken a few weeks ago, originally for my "jaunt" post on Far Flung Four.

How will you usher in the year of the Rat?

Lobster flavoured candy?

A Prosperity Burger and Red Bean Pie?

A family flick with Jay Chou?

A new Auntie blouse with just a hint of traditional styling? (ps, is it just me, or does everyone look better with no arms?)

Best to have some festive bling around the house. These were actually amazing folded paper creations, the phone cam couldn't get it.

Gold always begets more gold. So does small oranges. But a golden frolicking rat takes the cake!

Or does it...

WISHING YOU ENLARGE YOUR WEALTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
