Chap Goh Meh '08

Yesterday was the last day of CNY (also called Chap Goh Meh in Hokkien). PaPa bought some fireworks and Pop Pop the day before from the Chinese medical hall. We wanted to let the kids play with it before CNY is over. And we invited BIL and family over so CH can join them too. As we wanted something different for dinner (quite bored with home-cooked meals everyday), I asked PaPa to buy pizza and KFC on the way home.

After dinner, we let the kids play with the fireworks. CH and CE were not afraid at all. They can hold the stick but the adults have to hold on to their other hands coz they like to grab the sparks. The kept saying "stars" coz the sparks were in the shape of stars. It was quite a fun way to end the CNY.
