What A Wonderful Day


For the first day of Chinese New Year 2010, we had quite a number of visitors.

Most of our visitors came with their family and friends.

There were also first time visitors, coming together with their family.

There were times when the sofa set and the marble table set were packed and squeezed with people.

We had to use the dining table set to cater for the needs of other visitors.

Virtually we had taken out all our available chairs down stair.

Sometimes we had more than 30 people in one setting.

No...no....... don't be mistaken. I am not bragging about the number of visitors visiting our home.

What I am saying is that we have been blessed with more visitors every year.

These visitors came every year and continued coming. In the process, we had seen babies became kids, kids became adult, bachelors got married, and the ever increasing family size,....... "Be fruitful and multiply the earth!" LOL - wonderful, wonderful.......

Every conversation was filled with tease and laughter, with many words of reminders and encouragement....

Every conversation was filled with ideas and thoughts of past visitations, with many creative and innovative ideas of how to decorate the home further.

We learn a lot through open houses.......

We had seen different shades of colored walls, beautiful and expensive sofa sets, table sets, screen and sound system, creative decorations and festive Chinese New Year lightings, ........ I was really amazed with the time and effort every family spent in making their house a home for everyone.

Then the friendly small talks, the serious concerns on various regional and global happenings, the wonderful ideas of bringing up babies, kids, and teenagers, the incredible ghost and horror stories and sightings, the many jokes and humors, ...... oh my goodness, the topics were just endless........

Then looking and examining babies and kids behaviors, characteristics and attitudes...... the many funny and innocent moves and activities..... and couples with all grown up children playing around childishly with other couples' babies and kids.... the sound of applauds, cheers, claps and jeers..... and the good wholesome laughter and fun...... Wow! It was just wonderful.......

And so the many moments of heartfelt feelings.....

The many moments of personal touches and helpful thoughts.......

It was just impossible to understand how a single day like this could achieve so much feelings, caring, loving, helping, comforting, consoling, laughter and fun, closeness, and help to clear away all clouds of doubts, worries, tensions................

Oh what a wonderful day!
