Chinese new year had always been boring to me. This year is no exception but not the same way.
Like all chinese do, I sat closely together with my family. Having reunion dinner on the chinese new year's eve. It wasn't that memorable though. In fact every dinner with my family members were meaningless.
Every Chinese New Year, I would be slapping my forehead like a 100 times. Somehow, I've get alot of complains from all walk of culture here. For chinese, its common that I get "Aiya, I gain weight jorrr...". Hei! Its nothing to be shy of if you just eat, sleep, eat, sleep and the lines goes on. I'm experiencing the samething like these guys do
. Or should I say, I fei jor.
Blame it on us but, Chinese New Year are one of the best time to enjoy homemade food
. Begin with reunion dinner, delicious food would be prepared by mum. Feeling evil, one would tend to clear the entire dishes leaving the plate empty (easy to wash ma). Next on the menu there would be pineapple tarts, chocolates, cookies and "yuk gon". Then there are tons of fizzy drinks like coca-cola, shandy and etc that will fill your tummy. Do that mathes and you will know.
Whats more, what do you expect to do during chinese new year, sports? You don't get to exercise that often on chinese new year la!
Worse comes to worse for those who going back to kampung. Sitting on the car for 4 hours is totally wiping out your mind from conciousness. My condolonce for them. When meeting up with relatives, again you get sink your teeth in their food this time. Some would be having fun with their long lost relative(gambling) . Whereas the other group of people would felt very boring with those strangers or known as doing nothing. In any cases, you still don't get to work out your butt and thats how we get to accumulate our fats.
How about me then? This time, I didn't get to meet any of my relative this year. I didn't get to sink my teeth in their food. But still, my mom made alot of cookies and I'm the only one capable of finishing the job! I was totally bored in here. While my friends were busy throughout the holiday, I don't seem to get anything to do. Study? Sports? Nahh...I dive myself into some online computer games instead. As I was leveling up my character, at the same time I was leveling up my fat!
Although I don't enjoy my Chinese New Year but at the end I went to Jason's house a friend of mine. Don't be mistaken, I didn't go pai lin or celebrate chinese new year. I'm just being forced by those foul beast friends to gamble while his parents were away. To summarize, I brought a Rm2 note and a couple of coins along me. At the beginning I lost all of it, then I somehow won back my money. At the end, I won RM 3 which is enough to eat 2 roti kosong plus one Teh O limau ais. Whereas for those big winner like Kah Wai that won Rm 25 and Christopher Rm 40. Kah Wai was kind enough to pay for some food bought to be cook. However, Chris had run away with those money! So if anyone saw him, please do not gamble with him.
Duh... so much for my Chinese New Year.
