Gong Xi Fa Chai!

As a lot of my blogging friends are celebrating the start of Chinese New Year today, I thought I'd get into the spirit of things & have a Chinese lunch. Mum made me that well know Chinese dish, boiled rice & dog kibble!

Look at the beautiful presentation of my din-dins.

Yummy yummy in my tummy. (This photo is actually me getting second helpings as the camera batteries ran out as I polished off the first bowl of rice & kibble. Just got kibble this time, but I'm not complaining!)

I'm not too hot using chopsticks, so opted for the easier option of shoving my muzzle in the bowl & polishing it off in double quick time.

But when you've got a nose the size of mine, it's hard to eat delicately out of a little china bowl.

Never mind, I can hoover up the bits I spilled.

Mum also said it's traditional to give a red envelope containing money. Well, I found an envelope, but I haven't got any pennies in it, boo hoo.

So, GONG XI FA CHAI! Happy Chinese New Year!

Hey Oscar,

That is so cute. Red envelope with no pennies inside..haha. thou we celebrate CNY, we didnt get any red packets too. But it is okay cos we got and automated cash machine (mom) at home. And with that, why would we need money to spend.
