CNY 2010 Day 1: Bai Nian

The Tiger Chinese New Year 2010 celebration was held in a super duper hot season. As usual, the Chinese will wear everything newly brought if possible and will give red colour as priority. Some even wear red underwear or bra to symbolise 'ong' or 'huat' or 'fortune and luck'. Me and my family visited older or higher rank relatives as early as 9.30 am. We had our early breakfast before starting off our journey. At each pit stop (houses), we were forced indirectly to drink at least one drink either carbonated or packaged drink and to eat the snack foods of vast variety. I wonder how much sugar and salt that I had consumed. About the 'bai nian' session, it is nothing new but usual chatting, updating information, 3 8'ing for aunties and talking rumours. Perhaps, the new discovery in this time 'bai nian' session is the below family tree photo that I would like to share with my readers.
What is your first impression when you see this picture? Do you think that the family tree is a lot? Then, you are wrong. The above picture is just a part of the whole family tree. It consists of 5 generations with about 70 + people. The number is even more than you can imagine. We were totally shock to discover the number of the family tree upon seeing this picture hanged on the wall.
Nothing much to update for Day 1. Perhaps, my whole body was sweating crazily until I can feel each drops of the sweat. More interesting story will be on Day 2 which I went back to my hometown. Again, I would like to wish all my readers 'Happy Chinese New Year!'.
