1st Day of Chinese New Year

Yippee!! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Come on.... come on... I want the red packets in my red Polo bag... and then it will go straight into the bank once I reach the Penang Island I can't wait to get back to.

Grandma's house, also 4th uncle's house.

Everybody is here. Everybody as in... everybody. Photos!! Photos!! There will be lot more photos in my facebook. I also don't know what to do with so many photos. Next year will be different. I already plan to make a scrapbook.... a family tree scrapbook.
The house was abuzz with people moving in and out and walking up and down. Kids running around the living room, screaming at the top of their lungs, whining about for not getting what they wanted, sweat all over their angelic faces and giggles that make your lips curved into beautiful smiles. One minute the babies were hyper, the next minute, sound asleep. How nice to fall asleep within seconds and put everything behind. Sleep like a baby... peaceful.
Cousin bro got the lion dance to perform in the house to ward off evil spirit.
Errmm... I just watched.. I don't believe in this kinda thing. I believe in the God Almighty, the Ruler and Creator of the universe and its occupants.

Grandma wasn't really in a good shape. No appetite. Sleeping time totally out of our zone. Love you, grandma! You're the best and you're not useless... just old and wise.
When your cup of iniquity is full, let God decide. We love you as who you are... not what you're able to do or not able to do. Your disability will be compromised with our abilities. What you can't do, we will help you. You may forget and ask the same questions again and again, yet we will answer you patiently. I'm actually glad that nobody raises their voice against grandma for asking the same questions repeatedly. We love you, from the bottom of our hearts. We are glad to have such a loving grandma and we are proud to be your grandchildren. You have proven that education is not everything even though it may play an important role in this new era but love, patience, discipline and endurance are able to build a strong family. We will never neglect you no matter how bad your health deteriorate. We will care for you and shower you with our love till the end of your days. Your tears and physical aches etched deep into our hearts.

.....angelic faces and giggles that make your lips arch into a beautiful smile.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But I thought 'arch' is curving downwards. nt upwards.

You're right.. but I can't find the exact word.. let's say arch in the opposite direction...
