And so was little Scot .....
Once dinner was finished, it was time to get dressed up for the CNY eve mass at St. Michael Church.
"Hopefully when they are grown up, they won't be fighting over the same girl too"
As the mass started at 10p.m. we had well prepared the kids with a good afternoon nap so they were all very energetic, lively & happy despite a slightly longer than the usual 1 hour mass. Additions to the routine were 'angpow' packets & mandarin oranges distribution to the kids as well as the commemoration of the ancestors session. Then after the service, there were even a little party thrown outside the church with various CNY cookies served to all. Also seen were in-law's old friends & other relatives that resided around the same area and they had a good catch up too.
Despite the clocking of the mid night, the kids were enjoying themselves savoring the oranges & junkies!
We were all tired & sleepy but it was well the worth as we experienced yet another warm CNY's eve again. I bet everyone retired the night as calmly & as gratifying as I am.
