New Year Couplets..

Chinese New Year is next month.

There are lots of things to do to prepare for the festivities.

Spring cleaning, decorating, shopping(for new year tibits, clothes, bed sheets, plants), going to the bank to exchange new notes(for ang bows), buy gifts for relatives(my parents) and queue for bak kwa

(I scratched the last item, cos I doubt I’m able to brave the crowds with my flu.)

The family is doing a good job with spring cleaning. A little tad early, but early is good.. I think we’re 60% upon completion. Huarry!

Cleaning is laborious, but rewarding.

During the process, we found some coins trapped in nooks and crannies..

.. I use them to buy a New Year couplet. 🙂

“出入平安” means “may your going in and coming out (of the home) be in peace”.. and also “Safe travels”.

Pasted on the main door.. gold characters/alphabets against the red fabric.. how festive it looked.

It’s starting to feel like Chinese New Year. 🙂
