Photos by MJ Klein & Hui-chen
Hello everyone! We’re back from the Lunar New Year in Kaohsiung. We apologize for being away for so long. What began as a simple 6 day visit ended up being more than 3 weeks long! In addition to the visit with the family, Hui-chen and I decided to go car shopping (never actually intending to buy anything, but just looking). After that I got sick for 5 days with an awful stomach flu. After I recovered from that, we decided to buy the car we had been looking at, and that process took several days! So, we’re back now and soon I’ll have an article about the new car, but now without any further delay are some photos from the Lunar New Year (but not necessarily about the Lunar New Year).
Let’s start this one off with one of my favorite photos of Phoenix:
As you can see, Phoenix can now lay on her stomach and hold her head up quite well. She was perfectly happy to lay on the bed and pose for photos!
Speaking of Phoenix, as you can imagine, she was quite a hit with the family, and I can tell you, she cleaned up with the red envelopes!
This is Hui-chen’s aunt holding Phoenix.
Auntie gives Phoenix her first-ever red envelope. Phoenix found it fascinating!
Of course, Phoenix was a big hit with all the aunts:
Auntie takes a turn at feeding Phoenix.
Then Hui-chen’s mother takes a turn. Seems like everyone enjoys feeding a baby.
I managed to get a nice shot of Mother/Daughter.
In some photos, Phoenix looks remarkably like Hui-chen when she was a baby.
I did take some shots of the neighborhood (with the GPS attached) from the roof:
This is a very interesting structure, suspended from towers.
Hui-chen’s parents live near a canal that leads into the harbor.
See the ship in the distance?
The famous “85” building.

Hui-chen took a couple of cute photos using her mobile phone:
Here I’m wearing a harness carrying Phoenix around in the Dream Mall.
Sometimes Phoenix wants to sleep in the big bed with Mommy or Daddy. Hui-chen snapped this photo of us, sound asleep.
We hope you enjoyed these photos from the Lunar New Year! Be sure to leave us your comments below!
