HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!
CHUC MUNG NAM MOI!
My family came over for dinner to celebrate the new year! If the holiday was during the weekend, they would have came for lunch too. During the weekdays, people have school and work. Mom went crazy this year making lots of foods to eat. I wanted a family photo because its only today that we were all together. Other family gatherings consisted of San Francisco people only. This is just my dad's side of the family who live in the bay area (Pui was at work and didn't come). There were 23 people total in my home, but only family were photographed. My mom's side didn't they come. I am in the back wearing glasses. It is time for me to get a different frame! I am tired of the thick pink around my eyes.
Andre is wearing a Chinese jacket! =)
The three kids of my family with Lo. They are all wearing stripes! I did not notice it until now. =) We were hiding in my room to avoid the crowd.
|before trade =)|
|20 in singles|
To prepare for some soft core gambling, I had to break into my savings of tip money (from haircuts) for the first time. I didn't want to take from there so I traded larger bills for the singles.
We used watermelon seeds to place our called numbers. After everyone left, it was all over the place. The cause of the mess was because of Riley!
Riley's dad, Kyle and Tommy won!
Frank was our dealer; he brought lots of singles for this.
This picture was taken at the beginning. Only dollar bets here. A short time later, fives, tens and twenties were used! (+__+) Linh and Frank won this year! Every year Lo and I lose!!!!! Why is that??? He won lots at the beginning but kept playing and lost it all. I think that when Lo and I actually start working, we will use more money. As for now, we were stingy with our playing.
