So much has happened over the last week that a lot of it has just been a blur to be honest. Let’s take a moment to digest all of the things.

Lunar New Year of the Metal Ox

So we rang in the year of the metal ox on 23 February, 2021. It was not a usual lunar new year, as the world was still reeling and recovering from covid with varying levels of success. Restrictions were still in place, and in Singapore, that meant each household could only receive up to 8 visitors per day during the lunar new year period.

As our extended families were rather large, we opted this year, to almost entirely forgo visiting, except for immediate families like visiting my dad and my in-laws. This relieves us of the headache of planning for the logistics of working around the 8 person per day rule.
