I feel like I am always playing catch-up.
There is never enough time to do everything; to see all the people you wanted to; to share with them every little story that you have; to tell them every funny jokes that has made you laugh; to listen to what they wanted to say; to finish doing laundry; to leave messages for friends in facebook; to blog about anything and everything...
Sunday is Chinese New Year's Eve and it is our 2nd Chinese New Year since moving into this house.
Last year this time, I told myself that I was going to bake Chinese New Year cookies so that I could feel more at home here. At least the baking smells without the burning incense or fire crackers smell could still provide me with the slightest comfort during this joyous festival. The two cookies on my list were (still are) my favorite delicacy of all - pineapple tarts and peanut cookies. And guess what, I fail miserably. Looking at my activities tomorrow, and that I am still writing this blog at midnight, I do not think I will be baking cookies this year. I'd be glad if I could stick to my reunion dinner menu by dinner time on Sunday evening.
Wish me luck!
Wishing you Happy Chinese New Year and have a prosperous 'Ox' year.
