Littlest Girl's 1st CNY in the Year of the Rat

I've been sleep deprived because my baby still wakes up for milk every 3 hours at night 😴 nevertheless, nothing will stop me from journaling my littlest girl's first Chinese New Year celebration 😄


It's my zodiac year this year so I think I went a bit crazy buying decorations, which were on sale anyway due to COVID-19.

However, I paid full price for the Christian decorations sold at my church because they were so pretty and meaningful!

Other decorations I bought from the market which were on sale!
Pretty decorations 😊


The Heng family decided to have our reunion dinner at the Westlake Restaurant this year instead of the usual steamboat. The restaurant was so crowded!

We had an enjoyable reunion dinner! 

The Lee family had reunion dinner at home as we have always done, steamboat and all.

The very blessed Lee family is celebrating CNY with 2 babies!
Both girls born in the year of the pig 🐷
The eldest girl calls them NaNa twins 😄
Our steamboat feast!
As our family grows larger and larger, it is getting harder and harder to take a selfie!


I was so excited to dress the 3 Lee girls in matchy-matchy dresses that I got at a great bargain ($10 each!) during a sale last year. I tried to find a fuchsia outfit for myself but only managed to get a top from Love Bonito.

The girls' dresses for CNY

Love how coordinated we look! 

Kids look so cute here!

We headed to my parents' place after lunch to visit my mum.

We ended the day at the hubby's 4th uncle and aunt's home with the rest of the Lee family.

Day 2 was spent visiting at the hubby's uncle and aunt's house.

This year's CNY happened to fall on Saturday and Sunday hence we've got 2 more extra days to spend as a family. We spent the 3rd day at City Square Mall where the kids got to play at Airzone, a suspended indoor playground.

Playing in a very different kind of ball pit
It actually looks quite scary 😅
Bouncing around and playing with a giant ball
This is suspended about 6 floors above ground!
Kids were totally unfazed 😅


We visited Gardens by the Bay and utilised our Friends of the Gardens membership (which we got for half price 😊).

It is the littlest girl's first time at Gardens by the Bay and she was super excited!

We had a great extended long CNY this year! I'm glad my baby had an awesome first CNY! ❤️
