Popularity 2Viewed 2003 times 2016-2-15 22:09 |System category:News

   The first day of lunar New Year is also the beginning of visiting relatives and friends or inviting others home the next few days.All of us wear new clothes and say "Happy new year"or something auspicious when we meet acquaintances.Smiles appear on faces and families walk along the streets with gifts.
   Grandparents's(on mother side)new house,2016.2.8.Ha ha,like a little cottage~ 
   This year we go to grandparents' home (on mother's side)in countryside,where the house was old before but rebuilt last year.Dishes on table are rich in fish and meat too like family reunite dinner but contains one more dainty,Fish Ball,which was made by my grandma herself.Every time I visit,she is delighted at making native food.Watching and making together with her feast my eyes and hands.Gnocchi,sugar burning egg, soup of crust of cooked rice.You maybe can also have them in cities,but can't enjoy the authentic real taste and the affectionateness made by the old.
Grandma is making gnocchi.I photoed it in summer in her old house.This green gnocchi contains sweetened bean paste.
     This is the semi-finished product of fish ball.Photoed it on 2015.2.24
    Soup of crust of cooked rice.
     For kids,eating candies as soon as coming to one's home is common,with the moral of sweet in the whole year.Of course can also receive a red envelopes.Play games,cards and eating!I'd like to play military chess with my uncle,while sisters and brothers are absorbed in angry birds.= ̄ω ̄=
Military chess.Who grab the other's ensign who win.
  We four.~\(≧▽≦)/~

Well,the rule here is that only sappers can dig landmines,and bombs can bomb everyone except the army flag.Maybe rules are different vary from areas to blocks.:)

Ha! You are tricked. I was kidding. Thanks for pointing that out though. By the way, landmines can not only removed by sappers, but almost by bombs, but of course, bomb will be wasted at the same time. You are right, bomb can't be used to capture the standard while every one else can take the standard.
