Happy Chinese New Year! Let the pig in and the dog out… Let the ‘ong’ in and the ‘suah’ out… Let me in for some ang paos! Yeay! Its time again for celebrations, makan makans, ang pao ang paos, drinking drinkings, talking talkings and laughing laughings.
The ‘tuen yuen’ or reunion dinner this year, is pretty much the same as last year. And the year before. And the year before before. And the year before before before. Which is?
Working at dad’s shop from morning, saying ‘thank you’s and faking a smile and cursing with Bex under our breaths. Sent the workers home at about 8.15pm and reach home at 9pm something. Got to my uncle’s house late for the supposedly dinner. Eating only leftovers from what all the uncles, aunties and cousins left for us after their second round. Cold dinner, didn’t even bother to reheat the food. Too hungry and too late.
Yeah, Happy Chinese New Year alright.
Cousins all looked great… The boys got handsome-r and the girls (excluding Bex-Brooke-Aubrey Romaine-Moonlight-Daylight-and-I-don’t-know-whats-your-name-anymore) got prettier. Truth be told, glad to see that some of the boys got pimples! Hahahaha! I’m jealous of their flawless skin. But failed to see pimple on King’s face. Where’d you hide it?? Darn!
The gathering with friends have been planned well ahead of time. Can’t wait to see them again. Gossips to be shared! Nothing should be left out!
Anyway anyhow, happy holidays! Really needed the break…
