::: Chinese New Year :::
今日は旧正月を祝う行事が行われた。
ジョンが兄弟姉妹とみんなでDimSum(飲茶)に行くからといって、
誘ってくれ、朝から大忙し!

It was a big celebration day for many chinese and vietnamese and Korean People for Chinese new year.
John asked me out for DimSum with his brothers and sisters.
It was a busy day from the morning.

7時半に迎えに来てくれ、そのままCanningvaleMarketへ。
マーケットで売られていたペットウサギをなでなでし、
ジェーンのマミパピと話をしてから、9ホールのゴルフを回りに!
もちろん、わたしはゴルフできないので、ぷらぷらついて回った。
退屈だったので、ジョンにつまらないからもう来ない!と念を押しておいたwww。

John came to pick me up from Perth (Thanks!) at 7:30am and we went to Canningvale Sunday Market together.
There are many little stools there selling all sorts of stuff including my favorite pet Rabbits.
I patted them for a long time and didn't want to leave them...
Jane's parents were there selling some stuff so I went to say hello to them.
Then John and I went to play 9 hall golf with Brandon and Brandon's work mates.
Off course I can not play golf so I was following them play golf so I was following them.
I got bored and told john that I don't wana come back for golf.
He understood already from my mood.

これはゴルフ場にいたダック。
They were the ducks in the golf course.

いったん家に戻るとマーケットから帰宅したJulieが。
そこに家族全員そろい(Janeはすでにキャンベラだが。。。)、
既婚カップルのJennieとRickyが家族全員にお年玉を配ってくれた。
私はいったん断るが、JulieもJohnももらっておきなさいとのことで、
ありがたくいただくことにした。(30にもなってお年玉♪)

We went back to John's after.
Julie got back from the market and everyone was home.
Rickie and Jennie "Married Couple" were supporse to give family a red back which is like Otoshidama in Japan.
They gave me one even I refused once. Julie and John said I should have it because it is a part of Chinese culture and I can experience one.
So I felt really happy that they are really treated me as a part of their family. And I recieved the offer too.
I was so lucky to recieve Otoshidama for my age. I am 30!!!

午後1時にNorthbridgeのチャイナタウンへ。
DimSumに向かう途中、獅子舞に遭遇。しかしながら、音楽隊しか写真に収められず。

We head off to Northbridge where China town is.
We saw tigar dancing on the way to Dim Sum.
Unfortunately we couldn't take photos of Taigar dancing but the bands member.

本場の飲茶は蒸し器のついているワゴンにおばちゃんがいろんな飲茶を乗せてひっきりなしに廻ってくる。
好きなものをそこからとり、注文書にチェックをつけていく仕組み。
DimSumのおばちゃん待ちの様子。

Dim Sum here is not like in Japan.
The ladies brings dishes in a steamer built-in trolley and we get to choose what we want to eat. Then ladies checks the order in the paper.

They are the photo when we were waiting the Dim Sum ladies.

みんなでたらふくDimSumを食べた後、マンゴープリンをオーダーしたが、売り切れ。
とのことで、Gellatoのアイスを食べに別の店に!
さらに満腹になった私たちは、そのままPerthの街をぶらつき、
帰宅。

When we finished eating dishes we orderd mango pudding but they were sold out last night already. So we left DimSum and went to Gellato shop.
We had Gellato each and went to the city with fulfilled tummy before going home.

その後みんなで7時すぎまでバトミントンをしに行った。
10歳のころに一年ほどバトミントンをしていた私。
やはり、当時と同じように行くわけがない。
しかしながら、はだしでスカートというハンデを背負いながらも懸命に5試合戦った!
ダブルスを組んだDaveの助けもあり、うち2試合勝ち!

After we got home, we went to play badminton together.
I used to play when I was 10 and I thought I could play like before.
Wow, no way.
Anyway, even though I was handicapped with bear foot and wearing skirt to play, Dave and I did well for doubles and won 2 games out of 5.

ものすご~く楽しんだので、来週も誘ってもらった。
来週は勝つ!

I have great fun playing badminton and John asked me if I want to come back for the next week. Off course my answer is yes!!!
I will beat them next week!

たのしいChinese New Year Dayだった。
It was geat Chinese New Year Day.
