William actually made quite a number of wire jewelry projects when i started to assemble all the pictures he has taken of his projects. Some are made as gifts, made for order as well as lucky draw items at school function.

Introducing someone who has shown interest in this thing called Wire Jewelry.
He did play around with wire and made me these 2 pairs of 'S' shaped earrings when he's 4 years old.
He is now 17 years old. Time really flies while they are growing.
He is slowly taking interest in creating wire jewelry again.
Very slowly as he will be sitting for his exam soon.
Here are some of his earlier wire wrapped pieces with stainless steel, copper and brass wires. They were his 2018 year end long school holiday projects. Most of them are practice pieces. Haha, yeah, it took me that long to post them today.
Those are for another day posting.

Thank you for being around and hopefully you would stick around for many many Chinese New Years to come :)
This year, as in previous years, we celebrated moderately consisting mostly the same kind of stuff:
- On the eve, we had the reunion dinner where family members from near and far sit together for the dinner (basically food, food and more food). This year we have Annabel, Kwang and Abby over for the dinner as well (their first after moving back to Kuching). The reunion dinner is considered the biggest event of the Chinese New Year. As such children always make it a point to get "home" for this occasion no matter where they are. Not for me though, as I am considered married into dear hubby's family so I am with hubby and family (ah, complicated tradition ya? Never mind, leave this for some other time).
|As usual, my favorite is the one right in the middle - fish maw soup :)|
The rest....well I can ignore them.
- Final cleaning of the whole house after the reunion dinner (to sweep away ill old luck and welcome the new good luck). I thought we can rest after the fulfilling dinner but NO, we have to work some more....right till before the clock strike 12:00 am. Can't bring the dirt into the new year.
- Setting off fireworks (to scare off the bad spirit) at the strike of 12:00 am (although others started way earlier, like after dinner).
|I am not good at taking fireworks pic.|
This is the best pic I took.
- Next day, on the first day of CNY, first thing first, we distributed red packets or Angpows (with $$$) to the parents and the boys and the unmarried family members.
- Then we dressed up a bit, preferably in red (pinkish for me this year), ready to receive visiting family and friends and vice-versa.
Looky, my tourmaline necklace.
Very matching my dress ya..<3 love
|Ahhhhhhhhhmmmm.......Henry feeding Abby cupcake.|
- We visited the temples, praying for a prosperous, successful, happy, joyful, healthy, abundance, bountiful, smooth, good luck, peaceful, etc. etc. new year of the horse.

How fast they grow.
William is almost as tall as I am.
It was only like yesterday when I held
this little tiny baby in my arms (10 years ago!)
|William and Henry excited over the Kois.|
|Koi Fish symbolizes success and wealth.|
- Lion dance performance. They are usually invited to perform privately or at special functions, at different days of the Chinese New Year celebration.
