2nd Day of CNY

I presumed all my Chinese friends are busy with visiting relatives and entertaining guests. I also managed to visit a friend of which I had made a small painted cake for the occasion. My family also had our own gathering ala CNY but it all ended when my old mother fell and broke her hip. When we send her to the hospital there were many casualties involved in road accidents at the emergency ward. So people, please be careful when you are on the road.
