Kung Hei Fat Choi 2015!



Happy Chinese New Year!!! Kung Hei Fat Choi 2015!!!

Its been an emotional week and I'm trying to cheer up. I shared in my instagram @maryiangge about my nephew who passed away three days ago. His on on God's kingdom.

Four years ago, we stumbled upon the restaurant called "The Empress". We wanted to celebrate Chinese new year by going to the chinese resto and we end up celebrating bigger than we expected. The Empress had dragon dances and celebration that feels like I'm back in Asia. Its been four years now that we celebrate Chinese New Year here in Colorado.

Anyway, yesterday the news announce that there's gonna be a crazy snow storm here in Denver. We got lucky the snow storm arrived late in the afternoon today and we enjoyed our Chinese New Year's brunch.

The Empress has an amazing dim sums!!! There are carts going around the restaurant and the servers ask you what you want. Here's a pic of the cart :)

Tony's fav are the siomai and shrimp dumpling with cilantro.

Even Ayden love the siomai! By the way, mommy tip here. We bought a disposable placemat so he can eat in the table like how he eats at home. These to go placemats are perfect for restaurants or any where we eat out.

The Dragon Dance was awesome! This year 2015 is Ayden's first time to experience Chinese New Year!

Alyza had fun for sure :)

Even my mom in law did! 

So am i!

The best part of this celebration is food!!! 


Dim sums! 

Pecking Duck! 

Fried Rice! 


Delish food! Kung Hei Fat Choi 2015!

For the love of Archery!



It's been a couple of weeks since I blog. Today, I want to share my love for Archery!

My husband started this hobby for himself and introduced it to me. Then our whole fam is involved. Even Alyza has her own bow and arrow. Nutmeg and Ayden usually hang out with us while we shoot.

It started even before the hype for hunger games archery is on. 

These are our sets first bow and arrows we got at Rocky Mountain Specialty Store in Sheridan, Colorado.

There are so many stores around town and online but we choose local store. Sometimes we shoot at our backyard with our own target.

Hubby used to use compound bow and he switch to traditional bow. I eventually upgraded to long bow and until now i shoot it and love it!

I'll do an update inline with this quick blog post and share more when summer came back. Leave comment below if you like archery like we do :)
