During the first 15 days of the new year, most Chinese will invite their family and friends home to their "Open House". We've had a few invites this year which is really nice, it's such a special thing to be invited to take part in all these different celebrations.
On Friday we went to the Open House of one of Lucas' class mates. It's pretty much the same as a Hari Raya Open House - you come, you eat, you go..!
Yes, of course you are supposed to chat and catch up etc, but considering there are so many people coming through at the same time, you are not supposed to take up the space at the table for too long, nor hog the host too long either! :)
At this Open House they wanted to do a quick photo shoot with all the children. They had their own photo studio set up in their garage, very cool!
I managed to snap some "behind-the-scenes-shots"! I just love these - check out Lucas and the girls!
