Chinese New Year 2020 | Family Walk in Chinatown

I was really excited about Chinese New Year 2020 because after a long wait, it's finally the year of my zodiac animal - the Rat!!

Every Chinese New Year, we have a family tradition to take a little stroll in Chinatown to soak in the festivities and take photos with the decorations.

By the time CNY rolled round in end Jan 2020, the covid-19 outbreak {or as is it was previously known as Wuhan virus, nCov etc.} alert was already pretty high and people were already staying indoors more and practising social distancing.

I thought perhaps we weren't able to make it to Chinatown this year and was a tad disappointed since this year was extra special to me, but the boy said we can still pop by a while to take some pics as long as we stay away from the crowds.

Well, why not? I mean, not that there would be much of a crowd anyway...?

So off we went to snap some shots and eat kueh tutu and muah chee from our fave shop there. We didn't walk the outdoor bazaar streets at all. 

Lil Pumpkin and her daddy in their signature pose!!

Yes, Lil Pumpkin ain't that little anymore haha... she is about 3/4 the height of the boy now!!! I'm amazed that he can still carry her on his shoulders this year haha.

One day Lil Pumpkin will outgrow his shoulders, but she will never outgrow his heart (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤ #daddysgirl

One selfie with my boo...

I could not resist getting new cheongsams for CNY and bought 2 new ones from a local boutique, The Missing Piece, for the season. I loved them so much that promptly after, I bought another 5 pieces ahahaaaah....

I'm wearing a gorgeous ultramarine blue cape cheongsam from their signature collection here. I love the cut and feel of this modern CS so much I bought the same one in red hehe... It’s fitting but not stifling, and the stretchy cotton material makes it oh-so-comfortable. I’ve been doing more hip thrusts in the gym for a stronger posterior chain so my butt is bigger than before and I was kinda worried that the tailored skirt won’t fit honestly.

HOWEVER this cheongsam covered my curves perfectly like a glove!(‘∀’●)♡ The soft capes also drape beautiful over my arms {good for hiding fat haha} and the little waist cut-outs that give an illusion to an even smaller waist are very flattering. I haven’t raved abt an outfit for a very long time but yes, I’m so in love with this!

When I'm up for it I'll do reviews on the other pieces too *fingers crossed*

Covid-19 may be here to stay for a long while but let's not let it put too much of a damper on how we live our daily lives with our loved ones.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone! 2020 can still be a bright and beautiful year! (>^_^)><(^o^<)
