Hi there, Gong Xi Fa Cai to you & your family. This year you have a new member to celebrate it together. Must have receiving loads of ang pow! hahaha... Btw, love your prawns. Too bad that I am unable to take any seafood this year due to skin allergy. Yikes! Anyway, hope you're having a great time.
