This & That Including What Ails

Visiting Duke & Duchess Of Yore During CNY 2017 – Day 2

on January 30, 2017

It is always a treat visiting the Duke and Duchess of Yore at their home.

It is even more fun visiting them during the second day of Chinese New Year.

(* Little Sharing Note:

We celebrate for 15 days and it starts with a reunion dinner on the eve of Chinese New Year and it culminates into another reunion dinner to end the lunar new year celebrations.)

I would always be excited to see how Duchess would put out this year’s zodiac animal – the Rooster!

I was not disappointed as she had put up a Rooster and hen amidst the backdrop of a glass block with Buddha englazed within and a little gold colored lotus votive lamp.

Duchess has an eye for art and decor and her abode has lovely corners of art or her favorite orchids.

Her favorite showcase was where the windows were and on the wooden tops or ledges she would place these beautiful plants and orchids.

Cookies, food snacks would fill the table as guests flow in and exchange new year oranges and hong baos with her.

Big pots of kumquats would adorn the entrance to her hall and I could only take a small cut of it as it towered more than 7 feet tall and heaps of who’s who in lil red dot milled around this towering kumquat plant in a pot.
