This year, the first day of Chinese New Year will fall on 14 February 2010, which is also Valentine's Day.
In the past, Valentine's Day was a popular date for couples to register their marriage at the Registry of Marriages. Given the fact that it falls on the first day of Chinese New Year this year, I wonder whether the number of Valentine's Day ROM marriages this year will be less than before? Also, the people who have been invited to a Valentine's Day ROM marriage would be undecided whether to attend the ROM marriage celebration or engage in the traditional first day of the Lunar New Year relative visiting. *grin*
My Aunt SN (my mother's second sister) has gone back to Muar, Malaysia. In the interim and pending her next visit to Singapore, I decided to use the balance jam that we had bought for her consumption in Singapore by baking a jam fruitcake.
For those of you who will be celebrating Chinese New Year this year, here's wishing you GONG XI FA CAI!
