On the 2nd day of Chinese New Year we arranged to visit Aunt Betty, Uncle Gan, Jennifer Gan and her family. It is my tradition to visit Uncle Richard every Christmas and Aunt Betty every Chinese New Year, if I can't visit them throughout the year, at least I visit them ONCE A YEAR. Alas, Uncle Richard has passed on, so glad that I managed to organise some Christmas visits over the past few years:
This year, we decided to meet up at Desa Part City and since John and his family is in town too, it will be quite a nice lunch party at the Social, in Desa Park City
We have NEVER been to Desa Park City yet!!! I have heard a lot about it, how it is a well maintained township with beautiful landscaped gardens and a self contained shopping mall....and indeed it was!!! Here we are at the the nicely festively decorated entrance and it was quite pleasant if not for the hot and humid weather. Never mind, it meant that we could dress skimpily and dress cool, yet chinesey since it was still CNY.

Since it was evening, lots of residents were seen jogging, perambulating (that means pushing babies in prams lah hehe, ) and walking all manners of dogs.
Desa ParkCity is truly a self-contained township, centered on the ideals of good, wholesome living, where its residents are able to foster family, neighborhood and community ties.
there was even a bubbly brook and lots of whites and white kids about...
see, kids and adults taking pics and selfies
I love this pic, the colour is fantastic, and it is a candid study of my relatives set against the evening sky by the waterfront, reminds me of Shanghai
there was a long boardwalk too and the trees were all lit with fairy lights (ALL THE TREES!!)
I also love this pic because of the colour combination and I wished we had time to pose for more!
