Gong Xi Fa Cai!
It rained super heavily starting 7 something in the morning. Another downpour again after that. As usual, Gracie & Family has got an open house on the first day of Chinese New Year. All I can say is this year is quieter than before, even the guests are lesser in number. Some don’t even bother to reply my SMS. Never mind.
Managed to speak to Iris in the UK too. She’s about to go to sleep while we are preparing to dress up for the day. Feel a bit sad lor..and wanted to cry also because I really miss her. It’s just different, very different without her around. It’s been 3 CNYs. But today is not supposed to be a day to cry.
Poured tea for Pappy this morning, wishing him good health. Because we drank tea a bit later in the morning while busying with other stuff, there was already a guest in the house that saw me pouring tea and wishing my dad. She laughed. Pappy laughed then I also shy lor. hahaha.
Wore my new cheongsam. 🙂 Ada orang cakap saya cantik. Cakap saya sudah gemuk sikit. Gemuk sikit baru cantik cakapnya. Suruh saya it’s time to kahwin.
I get to meet the same people every CNY and I like the familiarity. There’s a boy that I’ve seen for 3-4 consecutive years from a baby to now being 5-year old. Very cute.
A friend, my junior, seemed blur blur the years before but now he’s all grown up and is already married! He’s a really nice guy and I kinda poured out a problem that has been hiding in my heart for so long when he asked about my relationship. A problem that I’ve not written here before and don’t think it will be written until the problem is solved. Offered to help me and by just listening to that, I’m already very happy. When you’re married, you’re just grown up and mature just like that. I look at him and I feel very happy for him. He’s young but he’s set so many things right in the first place.
Few close friends came and I appreciate it a lot. I don’t have the privilege to drive around here because there is only one car and I can’t drive that car because it’s a company car and I need a GDL licence to drive it. So I can only depend on others and there’s a friend who’s ever so willing to drive me. Nampaknya, dapat juga aku pergi bersiar-siar malam nanti. haha
No lion dance that came to the house in the morning due to the rain I suppose but at least there were 2 in the evening. One was quite old. One was nicer and very cheeky. I managed to snap one shot that I love every much today. The lion was like staring straight at me while I snapped a shot. It came out very comical.
Going for 2 other open houses at night. 1 more lion to catch and more angpows to collect!
