Happy Chinese New Year!  Been lazy lately so haven’t been blogging… 😛  It’s mostly due to getting accustomed again to coming back to school and going back to work.  Felt like my holiday wasn’t really enough.  he he  My bub and I are now looking forward to booking flights to Bali again sometime soon… 🙂  yeeha!

Been back in Perth for 2 weeks now but felt like I haven’t been away at all.  Been going crabbing with my bubby and his sister, Julia, as well as her boyfriend, Brett.  The boys were able to catch heaps of crabs while the girls relaxed on the beach.  Man, were the crabs BIG!  And needless to say, they’re absolutely yummy!

Also had my first Australia Day last Jan 26.  Spent the day walking on the beach with my bub… and then going to a cruise with my bub, Julia, Brett, mum (bub’s mom) and Julia’s friend, Stacy.  It was actually through Stacy that we were able to get cheap tickets to the cruise.  And it was there on the ship that we watched the fireworks.  It was grand!  Loads of money was spent by the WA government to be able to showcase such grand fireworks which lasted for about 30 minutes.  Never in my life have I seen such a show!  So overall… it was one heck of an evening!  🙂

To celebrate Chinese New Year, we went to Chinatown (Northbridge) to have dinner and watch lion dance.  Here in Perth, the lions go inside the restaurant and perform.  The restaurant personnel gives each of the table a couple of “ang-pao” (small red envelope), and briefly tells the customers what to do.  They also tell us to make it challenging for the lion to grab the ang-pao so some of us got up on the chairs and held the ang-pao as high as we could.

Well… that’s it for now… gotta go to class.  Ciao!
