Photo a day :: Feb 4 to 10

With my parents here, I’ve given up the kitchen to them. It’s indeed a blessing to have meals cooked for you. And I can even “order”! So my Instagram feed has been full of food pictures!

After our round 1 reunion dinner, we had round 2 with my cousin Swing who happened to be in the area doing a Cal-trip with her partner.

Everything prepared by my mum, assisted by dad.

It was funny as we hosted Swing while her mum hosted babysis in SG for reunion dinner. Love the extended family for “adopting” babysis for all the family feasting. This is what family (and CNY) is about.

We all headed to Napa together for the weekend and it was so surreal to be in Napa with my parents and sister and cousin Swing. I mean, who would have thought this was possible?

While they enjoyed the wine tour at Mumm Napa, we headed to check out the Riverfront (which totally reminds me of Robertson Quay!), and to test out the Nat’s new ride.

I know, what took us so long to get the double stroller!? Now, if only Min will stay in there long enough!

Nat took this photo of us, while seated in the stroller!

It was a very chill weekend for us, revisiting places we liked from our last trip – Bistro Jeanty, Kara’s cupcakes and Bouchon Bakery and letting the children have a run at V Marketplace in Yountville. However, it was a very different scene now in Winter with bare trees!

The yellow lunchbox, newly gifted by Cousin Swing, became her fav tote bag for the weekend.

Ahh…that familiar smell.

IMG_6879Feb 8 – Something orange :: Ironically, I have more CNY snacks here than if I were in SG.

Feb 9 – Guilty pleasure :: 2 Kara’s choc cupcakes after dinner.

Choc-anything is my weakness.

IMG_6900Feb 10 – 3 o’clock :: 3 hrs later, we are on the road, on our way home. With “Cat in the Hat” and “Blue’s Clues” on repeat mode. Now that I’m seated behind, I finally can watch the shows. Hah.

Actually, at 3pm, we were having our late lunch of SG-fare after a quick outlet shopping stop.  Yes, after 2-3 meals of Western meals, my parents (and us too la) want Asian food!
