    Happy Chinese New Year, Jocelyn!! It looks like you had a wonderful holiday. The selfie you took with John’s grandmother is absolutely adorable – a wonderful memory indeed.

    I hope you enjoyed your road trip and your first time driving in China. [I remember the first time I drove a scooter and car in Taiwan. Exciting times!]

    新年快乐! 恭喜发财!

    Joss, do you ever age? 🙂 Jun too!

    These are my favorite posts, where you do photo montages showing your area and your family.

    Happy New Year!! I see you are wearing red, I also wore a red dress on our CNY dinner, my boyfriend’s mum and aunt praised it and I asked them: “Aren’t we supposed to wear red during CNY?”. They weren’t sure but it seems the proper thing to do, right? 😛

    Based on your comment about the car I guess you passed your driving license test, haha. Congrats! How was the trip? I got my license almost a year ago and I haven’t used it yet…

    BTW, lately I am not receiving your new posts by email… weird!! I tried to subscribe again in case somehow my subscription was deleted but the system says I am indeed subscribed! Do you know if this is happening to anyone else? 🙁

    Happy New Year! (Although I guess it’s over now?)
    Looked a bit chilly, and I hope you could stay out of the smoke-filled rooms by puffin’ family members.
    Love the selfies with various family members, so cute! Shall make a note to try that next time I’m visiting family, hehe. ^^

    Happy New Year 🙂

    I think I would neverbe able to drive in China, just too crazy there at least in the cities. On the other hand Chinese seem to have troubles adjusting also to Western countries driving style. My father in law who never had even a scratch on his car ever since he started driving in China back in the day nearly crashed in Finland with only two! cars on the street. For some reason he just suddenly had the urge to change the lanes…

    Hope you have a happy & healthy year of the Goat!

    CNY is the same everywhere right? Countryside houses with lots of food and family members. I had to get used to it, but now I enjoy it. Looks like you did too!

    Happy New Year to you and John! That’s awesome you get to celebrate outside of the city. It must add a different dynamic to the holiday which most of us don’t get to experience.

    I’m sure you must be tired! I’m lucky my husband has a small family!
