Pink & Purple Lions

We had a family lunch in PJ on the 3rd day of Chinese New Year. There was a lion dance at the mall. Very colourful and these lions were throwing oranges into the crowd.

Black Fortune Cat

This year, I decided to go with this solar powered fortune cat.
Tsuru was wondering why it was waving. She soon got bored.  Hopefully that cat brings some fortune with that Toto ticket it is sitting on.

Nails for the New Year

I wanted a reddish purple but it came out more red than purple. Toes are painted in the same red. I never need gel nails on my toes but the shop always promote a gel manicure and pedicure set for the new year. 

The manicurists are mostly from Yunnan, China and they do not get to spend new year with their families. They prefer to visit families and home at other times of the year when the shop is not so busy and they can spend more time home.

Alice Doily WIP4 (LHO1)

This is the exact spot when I stopped to check and found a mistake made 4 rounds earlier. Can you imagine my horror? I immediately chucked the doily to one side. I hate mistakes! 

If you refer to the previous post and look carefully, you will see the mistake there. I wonder why I did not notice it when I blocked for that photo then. Sigh!

Isn't this just beautiful?
It is growing on the ground.
I have this in a pot hanging in my balcony 
but it does not develop this purple hue.
Probably due to the lack of direct sunlight.

Morning Moon

This was taken a few days after the blood blue moon on 31st January. On that night and the nights before and after, the moon was extra bright. It woke me up with moonlight streaming across my bed from the window.

Seraphina Doily WIP2 (LHO2)

This round is interesting. 
I was intrigued. 
I had to stop myself from continuing as I have been neglecting the other doily.

Barber Shop

This Indian barber shop was all decked out with lunar new year decorations. Love the red streamers across the ceiling. Very festive. He has clientele from all races. This barber shop is old school and still cater to the needs of many.
