This year, my brother-in-law and his family came back from Australia during CNY for the first time since they migrated. In the past, they have always come back only during school holidays in Australia. It is probably a shock to their system how we celebrate over here. They are learning to visit all the relatives they can cover in the few days they are here, and still make time to sample the food they have missed and shop for things.
For my family, it is a good time to see them. My boys certainly enjoy spending time with their cousin. It was good being able to spend time chit-chatting with them, and having reunion dinner with them. It cost a bomb to eat out for reunion but it was just so wonderful to just not have to bother about cooking and cleaning, and just spend the time in fellowship.
We'll be off visiting some more soon. Will update, and hopefully include some photos when I am able to. Gong Xi Fa Cai.
