I'm a little ecstatic today and I can't quite go to sleep when I feel like sharing what mood I'm in right now.

I'm happy.

Simply put, today was a Chinese New Year celebration for the fam.

We spent today at church, where I got to hear more of God's word. Had lunch at home, not what we wanted honestly since we were expecting to eat out *plans changed*

By the afternoon I had a really long nap though I already had a couple of thing planned when I woke up. Sadly I woke up by 5 pm. I took 3 hours of sleep, not a nap :))

Dinnertime came and it was the pre-celebration. Some of the food that was prepared was kiampung, and crispy pata. Not bad, the all pork thing though I prefer fish :)

Then came the flying lanterns bit :">

probably wishing it were another color :))

the first of my 6 lanterns

shirt showing how much I like bright shiny things and the face that says

waiting for it to inflate with warm air :D

My outfit is so not for going out in :))) These are actually my pajamas XD

found in my photoblog:
All in all, I'm proud to say that you don't have to be CHINESE to celebrate this day :)) I had a lot of fun flying these lanterns with the people I love that I couldn't possibly have asked for a better day :"> Please do check out my photoblog as well for some of my other works!

Here's the link to it:

I'd be so grateful if you stopped by and left a comment for me too, any criticism will be accepted :">

XOXO Marion :)
