Happy Chinese New Year!
新年快乐
>゜)))彡 Wishing that the Year of the Rabbit will bring each and everyone of you and your family heaps of good luck, better prosperity, good health, love and happiness!!  <゜)))彡

My family aren’t actually “celebrating” today because we’ve had to do it earlier due to certain circumstances. We met up with my Granduncle and a lot of distant relatives (that I don’t really know..) a week+ ago at a Chinese restaurant where Granduncle spent sooo much money on us all (;A;).
(Photos aren’t good cos relatives are too distant and I don’t know them and they looked at me funny when I tried to take the photos v.v /that and the little kids kept turning the tables – so I just gave up in the end and stopped taking photos)

And I met up with my elder siblings two days ago at their place where we ate some yummy food!
(My sister hates it when I take photos of food _ _” she doesn’t understand always complains and whines about it)

So well, my family (dad, mum, younger brother and I) just ate dinner together!
(My younger brother likes to tease me when I take photos of the food. He always tries to put his hand over it or pick up a piece while I take a photo ;-;)

However, since I bought a new cheong sam / qi pao (my old one was breaking ;-;) I decided to dress up and take some photos. (I had fun trying out different makeup too hehe) I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do my hair up or down so I asked mum. And she said do both ..so ..which do you think is better? lol

Oh, if you follow me on twitter (@melludee_x) you might know that my usamimis (I have pink and blue) arrived today!! (Just in time too!) So I decided to try and do Bunny‘s “Bunny” look since it’s the Year of the Rabbit. But uh ..it obviously failed. I didn’t know what I was doing so uh yeah ;_;

But anyway! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Chinese New Year and that all you get heaps of ang pao/li xi/red pockets!! ♥ Enjoy the yummy food and spend heaps of times with your family!
♥ ♥ ♥
Do you celebrate Chinese New Year?

I’ve been spending my days eating lots of kueh mmmmm.

    And regarding your hair on the photos, both are lovely. But the hair-up thing fits more with the dress I think.

    wow nice cheong sam! I think tying your hair up suits it more here.

    As if your nose bridge isn't high! I was dead set staring at it for 20 seconds and I was thinking to myself "Melody is ka-ray-zyyyyyy~!!"

    Anyways, I am heaps jealous that you can wear those types of dresses! They really suit you, and the red is very popping, I love it <3

  • Rinny

    Ahhh you look so cute in your qipao Melody! Your hair is crazy long – it must have taken forever to grow it out! I think it looks better up with the qi pao :D

  • mookxi.com

    Such a hottie in your cheong sam ! Hope you had a good one Melody ;-) Haha, food *drools*.

    What are you talking about ?! I think you make a pretty good rabbit impression ! :-P

  • SneakyLily

    AWWW I LOVE LOVE LOVE your dress! My friends tried to convince me to get a cheong sam for CNY but I resisted, then when I saw everyone else looking great in their I regretted.

    There are a lot around at the moment in Malaysia, I wonder if they will go on discount after CNY. Maybe I could get one for next year, but then i'd have to keep it a WHOLE year without wearing it -_-

  • Ribka

    Happy CNY!!! I think I should buy cheong sam for next year hahaha

  • […] as per tradition, I dressed up again! (See 2011, 2012) I decided to wear the same shirt as last year as it’s still much better than all the […]
