GONG XI FA CAI!!

first day of cny!! wake up at 9 plus.. got ready and dressed up for the chinese tradition of 'chum cha'.. anwyay, just the same old routine.. had to 'deliver goodies' (chai choi, mandarin oranges, tong sui and ang pau) to my neighbours and then sit down in "mahmah"'s house (my direct neighbour on my right).. collected alot of ang paus from them b4 returning to the house for the ceremonial tradition.. we'll be sitting at the round table in the kitchen where we eat all the "goodies" as mentioned b4, then we'll chum cha to our parents, wishing all the cny wishes and they'll give ang pau to us.. after that, we shall have our family pic taken (plus other smaller groups/individual ones).. b4 leaving the house, we had the "firecrackers" to 'hoi moon' (open door) for dunno what purposes... then, off to ku ma's house which is like just 3 houses away... went there wish everyone and then off to tapah to my eldest unc's house..
that will be where all my other relatives gather around... this time, there's a new face (or perhaps a few more) there.. namely, christie.. my sister's indian husband.. was so afraid that they couldn't accept him due to his skin colour... but surprisingly.. everyone seems to be qutie alright with it... my unc's wife even bought number (mai chi) on christie's number plate... lol....
went home relatively early this year cause everyone was so tired... i myself even slept for half an hour or so the moment i reached home..

played mahjong in the evening all the way till night time.. and guess wat? i won!!! haha.. RM22 to be exact.. from james and rosemary.. and i'm like the newbie in mahjong... haha.. guess it's all beginner's luck..
went for late dinner in koh samui while my parents will have their dinner with his bro and sisters... by the time i came back from dinner, it was like 10 plus... and the sad thing is.. everyone of my sibling is actually out with their friends and I.. well, just stuck at home... trying to make a video from my sister's wedding pics...

somethuing different this time though in the 'online chat' world.. was chattng with annie when suk mun joined in the conversation and then boon jin! haha... well, have to expose him to more 'social (crap) conversations'... bj was relatively quiet though and pissed annie quite abit.. (plus she's drunk from heineken beer)... but it ended quite well lar.. with annie inviting all of us to her house tmr after lunch... hopefully bj will go lar, then at least if i wanna bail... i could do that easily...
anyway, getting late and my throat's just recovered this morning.. better not abuse it and make things worse.. since it's like 2 something now....
