CNY Tripod Fun.

Started the new year with attending the mass on CNY Eve which lasted till the year transitioned.

Woke up the next day on the 1st day unusually early to start the annual routine of visiting and collecting angpaus.

Put on obligatory new clothes to "usher" in the new world. Just like the rest of the Chinese population.

Started camwhoring as soon as things started getting bored.

Stumbled upon a reflective glass pane and got a shot.

Proceeded to other houses for visiting, or rather "pai nien". Had loads of food and collected a number of angpaus in the process.

The addition of a 2 year old cousin, Amelia, who seems to have a penchant for posing as well, not to mention intruding in most of our photos are evident in the shots. Also seems to have taken a liking to the tripod, constantly working it like a camera and wanting to "snap". Future protege of mine, perhaps?

And of course, camwhored like crazy. Only thing this year was that I decided to bring the tripod along - hence, the full length shots and orchestrated poses.

After a long and tiring day, it still boils down to family unity and I got the entire family shamelessly posing for my camera at the side of the road, regardless.
