Backdated - Lion Dance

This year, my sons manage to see a few round lion dance. This make them very happy, till today they still ask for lion dance. We got a lion dance competition CD at home, they have been watching over and over again.

Beside than the chinese new year eve they saw once at FGS, then on the 8th days of chinese new year which is a replacement holiday for FT day, i brought them to mid valley. Since i need to change the SD card for their Ninetendo (yes, my boys very rough on playing it, this is the second card i change for them and it's not cheap ok.:( ) I leave them with their daddy and maid at the shop, then i went shopping myself. hahahhahahhahahahha

After my shopping while on my way up to the game shop to look for them, i saw lion dance troupe are getting ready in front of Yamaha want to do "lion dance". I quickly run up to the shop and bring my boys down to see the lion dance.

On the 14th days of chinese new year, hub and BILs engaged a lion dance troupe to 'bless' their stalls at the market. We (me and sils) bring all the kids to market to see the lion dance. Two rounds, one is on the 1st floor of the market, that is meant for the whole market, second round is on the individual stall that engaged them.


This is at the main market

On the last day of chinese new year, 15th day (chap goh meh), we went out for dinner instead of cooking a storm at home. We had dinner at Oversea Restaurant at Jaya 1, after dinner, we heard there is "lion dance" sound from somewhere, we go and find where the sound come from. My boys so happy they can see the last round Lion Dance, when we are there it almost finish, and the lion already finish their "acrobatic stunt" we still manage to see the ending part. That is one of the bistro engaged the lion dance troupe, i think must be the expensive one, and after the ending lion dance show, they light up 8 long fire crackers!! One of the famous MY FM DJ and one of the local artist was there with the bistro owner to receive the "blessing" from the "lion".

After watching so many lion dance this year. Two of my boys also do their own lion dance at home. Since they don't have lion head to dance with they use the blanket, jump from one bed to another bed. Sick or not? Not only this, they wear their arm gear and leg gear too!!!! Actually it is Fearles more "addicted" to lion dance, he start all this first, then only his brother Cruz also follow. *slap forehead*

*sorry for the blur picture*
Hand and leg gear - BOLSTERS

Hey, we were there too to buy my usual porks and veges on that day. My kids ahh...scared like hell....didn't even dare to go near the lion dance area.

Ehh..I just recently went to TTDI market every week to get my supplies (since I have to cook most of the time now) and I was choosing which pork stalls to go for. At the end I chose the one on the right. And you know what...I was telling my hubby that one of the guys there really look like your hubby leh. I just told him what I wanted to cook and he chose the meat for me...damm geng!! :)

Frankly, I never been to wet market before. Normally I get my pork supplies from hypermarket..hehe.

What a small world. Mummykhong was so happy that she could find a pork seller that had the following requirements:
1. Must be leng chai
2. Must be able to speak good English
3. Must be able to recommend to her what part of the pig to use for what dish

The leng chai guy who looks like your husband (maybe even could be your husband working part-time that day) fits all her requirements.

Wah....later I go buy 4D.
