we celebrated Chinese New Year this year in France together with the other Singaporeans and
French in one of the hangers at the squadron. It was really quite enjoyable and elaborate, alot of
hard work was put in to make this celebration a success. We had sharks’ fin soup, a cold platter which even had seasoned jellyfish, sambal prawns, yu sheng and other yummy dishes. There was also a lion dance troup performing for us before the dinner and firecrackers lit up to welcome the New year.
Last Saturday we gathered at Johnny and LeeLee’s place for a reunion dinner. There was an elaborate spread for the steamboat and I made yu sheng. After we had our fill from the scrumptious dinner, the guys started playing blackjack till 2 plus in the morning. The “party” then continued with mahjong till 8am the next day. Hahaha!
On Monday we drove to San Sebastian for a day trip together with LeeLee and Johnny. Did quite abit of shopping and walking. Thank goodness not all the shops close during the afternoon siesta.
This Saturday we shall be celebrating “ren ri” over at our place. Till then, enjoy the photos and video which I’ve just uploaded.
