The Choi-Lai Family

I have decided to start a family blog so as to allow us to share our thinking, what we do as a family and especially our family holiday adventures. To start of with, we are a family of four that consists of myself, my beloved wife Devina Lai Chik New, my two children that is Sandra Choi Yin Wen (12) and Justin Choi Ren Hau (9). The picture was taken 5 years ago in year 2000 when we went on our family trip to New Zealand. The background of it is the spectacular Mt Cook.

I was born and breed in Ipoh, before I made Kuala Lumpur my second home about 20 years ago. My wiffy is a Peranakan Nyonya from Melaka, and she has also been living in Kuala Lumpur for a while. We met each other sometime around 1985 before we decided to get married and start a family. After marrying her, I have accustomed to some of the Baba & Nyonya lifestyle like communicating in Malay is your number 1 dialect in her community, eating with your hands and not chopsticks/fork & spoon and eat lots of sambal belacan, chincalok, petai, etc. And nyonya pineapple tarts is my all time favourite, especially during the Chinese New Year.

That's all I have as a quick intro to this blog, and will post more when I have more time.
