This is a backdated post....have been delaying for 1 month for updating about our CNY 2010 celebration.
This year is marked as the 1st year for Ryan celebrating CNY at Sibu. We used to go back to my hometown,Medan(indonesia) for CNY except this year. Hubby decided to stay back at his hometown (sibu) for CNY celebration. For sure, I am a bit sad, I still prefer back to my hometown,have a reunion dinner with my family members at Benteng Restaurant(my family's usual place for reunion dinner every year).
As for me, since I married to my husband,this is the 2nd time I was celebrating CNY at Sibu. The 1st time is during my confinement period,when I gave birth to my boy Ryan.
Okie...let's get back to our CNY 2010 celebration at Sibu...what were we doing during the first 15 days of CNY.
