Our Eating Binge Is Supposed To End Today...

Today is supposedly the last day of
the ChineseNewYear celebrations
And the last day of  the mumster's food binge
as usual, she has another good excuse
for this coming Saturday Feb19's
dinner.....err, dadster's birthday....
she's trusting we are that naive!!!

this being her first CNY
my sista is confused and paying close attention
to my explanation of CNY's traditions
and mumster's excuses for her food binge!
CoCo:  Tiff, all the family gatherings, the eating
is supposed to bring good luck for the new year
and the more mumster eats, the more luck
for her and us, ok?

Tiffy: yes, CoCo

CoCo: before, the celebration lasted a whole
month and now luckily it only lasts
for 15 days.......can you imagine  mumster's
waistline if she eats nonstop for a month???

you know, the food we ate are symbolic?
eg: dumplings - they look like golden nuggets
oranges -perfectly round symbolizing wholeness
and completeness
long noodles - for long life
you get, Tiffy???

Tiffy:  yes, CoCo

CoCo:  remember how i had to help
clean the house Prior to CNY? to clear
any bad luck from last year???

your hair trim and my new clothes.....
for a fresh start to the new year?

our red packets.....filled with $$$
for wealth and prosperity for this year

Tiffy: yes, CoCo...
so  YOU will be encouraging her
to continue eating
for endless luck for us???

and Tiffy

Do you get to eat as much as your mumster? Coco is a great sister and she's so good in explaining to you what is going on around in your house. Did you have a good time during the celebration? Wishing your dadster a Happy Birthday! Both Mummy's and Aunty Diana's birthdays happen to be in this month too!
