Raymond Lam and Bernice Liu have the same manager. Raymond Lam would organize a gathering each year to have a CNY dinner with artistes in the same group. This year, he needs to go to the US to do a show so the CNY dinner was pushed forward. Unfortunately, Yoyo Mung and Sharon Chan could not make it to the dinner. Only Bernice Liu was available.

Around CNY, Raymond would abide to traditions. He treats Bernice as a sister and invited her to have a CNY dinner. Even though Raymond is the youngest in the group, he was the first in the group.
So he became the “big brother” to Bernice. At the end of each Lunar year, he would organize the dinner party for all of his little sisters. Unfortunately, the conflicting schedules prevented the “family” dinner. In the end, only Bernice and Raymond were at the dinner table.
There weren't a lot of people but Bernice and her jokes added a lot of warmth to the dinner party.

Even though Bernice grew up in Canada, she knows some traditional Chinese customs.
When the two started the dinner, Raymond wanted Bernice's piece of fish.
They parried with chopsticks and Bernice immediately said: “You can't do that! During CNY,
you can't use chopsticks to peck at each other or else you will get yelled at by elders.”

She would continue to talk about Chinese customs and taboos.
She explained: “During the first day, you need to say lucky phrases. You can't say anything
unlucky or else you get yelled at.
You also can't wash your hair or sweep the floors. The third day is 赤口. Don't go over to other people's home to wish them a happy CNY.”

Raymond was a little helpless about not having enough people for the CNY dinner.
He said: “There's nothing you can do. It's hard to be the organizer for this event.
You have to accommodate this person and that person. I don't really mind about my scheduling. Never mind about it! This year, there were people lacking. But there is a next year!”
He expressed that he needs to go the US during CNY. He won't be back until the seventh day of the month.

He said with a pout: “I won't be in Hong Kong for the entire CNY so I won't get a lot of lucky pockets. But I won't mind if my friends and family set aside lucky pockets for me!” Bernice said that her parents would be in Hong Kong for the New Year. She has five cute dog plushies and joked that she would bring them along to get lucky pockets.

Raymond and Bernice are so cute. I remember when they had their Chinese New Year dinner with the other artists and it looked very warming. Even though, this year there is only Bernice and Raymond, at least they had fun right?

Raymond and Bernice looks so cute together. Can't believe Raymond is coming to the US. Cute that Bernice is going to spend CNY with her parents and her five dogs.

Heh, I thought that was basic superstitious knowledge about CNY. I knew those and I thought most chinese people would as well :unsure:

I always found the CNY customs to be funny. Although I do love the red packets. Hopefully Raymond will be able to collect all his once he gets back.

Raymond looks so cute in the photos!! I wonder where he will be on CNY. It's cute how he wishes his relatives will put aside his red lucky packets. Some ppl don't give you them if they don't see u! HAHA. Bernice sure know alot about CNY!!

Although it's just the 2 of them, the dinner sounds fun. Bernice knows so much about CNY tradition. I don't even remember all of them, just follow what the elders say. Yea, I think I saw Raymond's coming to US poster somewhere in Chinatown...
