Looking up :)

I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you for your care and love after my last post, your comments, smses and emails were really what kept me afloat and i'm so so touched and overwhelmed - every single one means so much to me. thank you.

It was a rather quiet Lunar New Year for us, but no less warm and fuzzy. Lots of hanging out with family, exchanging 'hong baos' and the girls just had a blast. Needless to say, they are both coughing now, and R even ran a fever on Day 1 of CNY from too much snacking :)

No pix though of our CNY outfits, cos' hubby said i looked "too much" when i emerged in my resplendent white cheongsum. So of course i had to sulk at him the rest of the day and refused to take any pictures :P LOL !

Luckily we made up and he & I managed to steal some time together to catch Red Cliff 2 at the cinemas on the first night of CNY, while my sisters baby-sat the girls. So thankful for all these small blessings and this pix of them (in their slumber party ditzy) is a wonderful reminder for years to come.

For those of you who haven't watched Red Cliff - GO WATCH !!!! It is simply awesome - rent the first part from the DVD store and catch Red Cliff 2 at the cinemas ! I am ashamed to say i knew peanuts about Chinese history but I was so inspired to read all about it after catching it. The movie depicts a period during the last emporer of the Han Dynasty and the wars fought to conquer lands between the ambitious Prime Minister Cao Cao, and various feudal lords. Lots of eye candy for those of you who like Tony Leung and Lin Chiling :P

Also *muack* to Sheri and Jaz for these awards.... you gals are really too awesome for words....

Last but not least, I was tagged by Jackie So I thought I should play along! This is how it works:
