Year of Earth Dog + Life Update

Happy Lunar New Year to those who celebrate it!
Year of Earth Dog for this Snake right here seems to be a good one. Although I'm not one to believe in horoscopes either it be the normal zodiac or Chinese zodiacs, it does cheer me up to read about nice things 2018 has in store for me.

It feels weird this year since I'm on the other end of the equation. Instead of receiving hong baos (red envelopes with money in it), last weekend I was busy giving away hong baos. And of course I'm grateful that my husband and I are in a position to give money but it still stings, not gonna lie. Especially since we are on a finishing stage of our new home, money is tight these days. But I'm not going to dive into that sensitive topic. 

I am excited tho, for our housewarming party this weekend and next weekend. We are splitting it in two. One for family and the other one for friends. I separate it not because I don't want my family to meet my friends and vice versa but I plan for a more relaxed vibe for my friends, a chance for us to catch up; while for family, it's going to be more formal with a priest and everything.

Needless to say I'm going to be a little MIA again this week. Even sponsored posts are in a halt since my husband and I are scrambling to get things together. From catering to making sure we rented enough seats, I barely have time to blog. 

But yeah, I am sorry this is such a forlorn post with me mostly complaining, LOL. But believe me, I never take a day for granted. Every morning when I open my eyes, I thank my God for another day, a loving husband on my side, my family, my friends, a roof over our head, foods on our table, clothes on our back, and of course I thank God for all the goods in my life.

To end this post on a happier note, I LOVE how dog owners are taking photos with their pets on Lunar New Year day. SO CUTE. Plus, how adorable are the hong bao' designs these year? My favourite is definitely that corgi in a kimono! Okay okay, kimonos are Japanese's not Chinese's, but it's still cute!

Well, wishing everyone a great wonderful Tuesday.
