Last Sunday was the Official Team Malaysia CNY Gathering 2018 which was held at Pool Villa, Setia Sky Residence that was organized by @joannewong and myself with the support of our Big Brother, @bitrocker2020 and other committee members such as @littlenewthings, @elizacheng, @karinzdailygrind, @orangila and @zord189.
We had few special guests namely @firepower, @sjennon, @shenoy and @varunpinto who flew all the way from overseas to join us for this event, @nickychu who flew all the way from Labuan as well and lastly, @kevinwong, the strong supporter for Team Malaysia makes the scene as well. It's been an honour to hosting you all and Team Malaysia members for this CNY Gathering.
Team Malaysia CNY Gathering wouldn't be complete with a starting ceremony by our Big Brother, @bitrocker2020 while the Yee Shang is prepared by @elizacheng, @bitrocker2020 and his lovely wife 😊, while I finished off with pouring some the sauces over it.
Yee Shang Preparation
throw toss begins, we started off with @bitrocker2020 giving a small speech on how to lou yee shang as there are few international guests which this was their first time doing it as well. After the speech, everyone had ready their own chopsticks and get into position! Toss Toss Toss!
Everyone is enjoying their tossing 😂.

Team Malaysia Lou Sang Video Clip
Honestly, I thought this Lou Sang will be like soft and easy kind of Lou Sang, well turns out it wasn't 😅. The amount of aggressiveness shown on this Team Malaysia Lou Sang is super high and everyone is wishing a lot. Below are some of the outcome of the Yee Shang from the different group, guess which is more aggressive? You be the judge of this 😂.
Yee Shang A
Yee Shang B
Yee Shang C
After the Lou Sang marks the starting of the event, everyone grabs some of the yee shang while some proceed to get some food over the other sides. While @bitrocker2020 and I clean up the table so other Steemians can have a seat to eat their food.

Food and Sunset Combo
It took us quite a while to finalize the menu as the choices given by the caterer is so much 😅, the number of registration keeps coming in and food that must be suitable for the occasion and everyone.
Finally, we hand over the menu 2 days before the event begins and voila~ here comes our food for the gathering. I hope everyone is satisfied with the food we prepared for this gathering, any feedback can let me know about it 😊
All food photos below are taken by @varunpinto which is super nice, and I got hungry again while drafting this post 😂.

Group Pictures Gathering
When all the Steemians attendant had arrived, it's time to gather up for some group photo. Since the pool villa has limited spaces inside, we proceed to do our group photo just outside the swimming pool area with the KLCC Twin Tower as our background.
@bitrocker2020 & His Awesome Announcement for Group Photos
It took a while for everyone to arrange their standing as we had 50+ of us in the group together and our photographers @orangila and @varunpinto are testing few shoots to get a nice angle. With all the setup completed, is time for that moment, 📸!

Thanks to Steemit and Team Malaysia, I've met more talented people comparing last year itself, who would have thought of this community went from merely few people to a big amount of people
Yummmm Sheng Moment
After the group photo, we went back into the pool villa and this is where Alcohol got everything hyped up during the gathering, and calling Yum Sheng makes the whole gathering super alive showing how energetic Team Malaysia it is. @bitrocker2020 showing the way of Yum Sheng to our international guest making it a very funny moment to be captured for my post 😉

Fortune Bag Cake
As time passes away, some of the Steemians had gone back home as tomorrow is Monday and I totally forgot about the cake that we bought for the gathering but I managed to bring it out before the gathering ends.
Choosing the right cake is a bit tricky when @joannewong and I went to the Bakery shop as it needs to suit the whole gathering theme. I did saw a durian shaped cake at the Bakery 🙈 but not all people will like the durian taste ( @sjennon is one of them 😅 ), in the end, we choose this Fortune Bag Shaped Cake which there might be a lot of STEEM, SBD, UPVOTES in it 😏.

Letting @karinzdailygrind, our February baby to do the honor
Look who just arrived 🙈
We end our gathering with some cake eating, mini group photo and some of the Steemian help out to clean up the venue and bring the heavy item back to my place.
Post Gathering Session
Most of the Steemians had gone back at this moment and the pool villa had to be empty off before midnight, some of our guests stay back at our place to hang around, chatting more technical blockchain stuff, eat to fill up their empty stomach after that yum sheng moment and chill for the night until around 2.00 AM.
End the session with a wefie
