Shucks, year of the Dog was three years ago. By the time it comes round again I'll be an old bitch. This is probably going to be a major blog update before godpa spends the next few days watching DVDs. I hope he doesn't keep me cooped up at home. He did mention maybe a family outing to Sentosa to see the flower show :)
Good food seems to be a focus for tonight's celebration, the eve of Chinese New Year. Godpa waited an hour to collect roast duck and pork from a neighbourhood shop and the scent of curry spices wafted through the house this morning. It's a family reunion dinner so will I get a portion of the goodies?
In contrast to the Chinese fare, godpa indulged in some modern desserts and coffee with friends last night. One dish is called Devil-misu. It's a variation of traditional tiramisu. I can tell from its looks it probably tastes great too.
He also tried Summer of Pineapple. A bright and cheery looking dish. Yum, when can I try some?
Since it's a new year, godpa asked me to pose for more photos. I'm a little reluctant since I don't get to enjoy any goodies!
