Happy Chinese New Year - 祝大家新年快乐

Life has to go on even with another failed IVF. Moreover, Chinese New Year is just around the corner. We do not want it to affect our mood or rather we would like to make ourselves more busy to avoid thinking about the IVF failure.

After making the Pineapple Tarts, Kueh Bangkit and Kuih Kapit, we made Fa Gao 发糕 and Nian Gao 年糕 on Sunday to welcome the Chinese New Year. CNY Tradition said that eating 发糕 during the CNY will help you HUAT HUAT HUAT and eating 年糕 symbolizing that one gets higher achievement during the NEW year.

To make our CNY celebration more "special & interesting" in a foreign country, I followed my friend, Mai to buy everthing that are needed during the CNY <办年货>. We bought Pineapple for 旺来, flowers for 花开富贵,Leek - 葱蒜 for 年年有得算,Fish for 年年有余 etc etc etc...

After the gym class this afternoon, I rushed home to do some last minute Spring Cleanning and get J to put up all the CNY decoration. We will be having a small steamboat gathering on the eve of CNY, I will be busy preparing the food and may not have time to blog again.

Hereby, I would like to wish all of you --

Hi. I've been following your posts about ur IVF procedure. Sorry about that. Like you, my husband & I are also trying for a new baby. Our son is already 10yrs old. I am not one of the lucky women out there who get pregnant easily. I am diagnosed with PCOS :(
Anyway, I am inviting you over to my new website, It's new, so there's not much post in there yet. But I got something there that might interest you and your friends. Good luck with all your plans and happy blogging! ;o)
