My CNY updates 
 

This year’s Chinese New Year celebration is slightly tamer than previous year. Though I would like to say that I managed to attend almost all the invitation surprisingly. I managed to collect a few angpows too along the way (perks of being single). Chap Go Meh is a few days away which will mark the end of the Chinese New Year festive celebration.

Here are some of the photos taken recently to commemorate CNY celebration.

 


Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Hj Ali Hj Apong Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism and spouse visited the Chong Fu Li’s residence. Also present were Chang Ein Hong, father of Chong Fu Li, His Excellency Cho Won-Myung, Korean Ambassador to Brunei and his family, Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank, Rino Donosepoetro, CEO of Standard Chartered (Brunei) and his family, Chong Ming Rui, my friend and host :p and others.
 


Thank Chong Ming Rui for the invitation. This is our tennis family though only one person doesn’t take up the sport
 


Tennis players from Brunei and Japan
 


At Leonard and Jackie’s open house. So Jackie, are you planning to visit Katmandu? :p
 


Visited John Tan’s residence and we had a good chat about toys with Stephen. It’s good to know the other side of John and his army toy collections.
 


A quick visit to Pat Li’s residence and I truly like the vegetarian home-made roll
 


Thankful for a wonderful friendship we have though we see each other once in a while
 


Tasted my first ever Blue Tea at Pat’s house
 


Even Mr. Brown’s greeting happy new year
 


Only known for less than 2 years but we have a great bond of friendship. Thanks for hosting my friend
 


… and Kristy makes one of the best latte in town. You can ask for her to serve you at Piccolo Cafe in bandar
 


We had an awesome learning experience in Hua Hin among other friends recently. It was a like a solo reunion and see how much both of us have grown individually. See you next time, Sarina.
 


Truly appreciative of my friend Pranika for accompanying me on my CNY visits this year. More to come …. next year :p
 


Without knowing, we coincidentally wore Deadpool colours :p
