Boring CNY

Nothing much had happened during the CNY celebrations. Let me see....what did I do??
*
Ate, slept, drank, got topsy turvy, got hungover, ate, slept again, gambled a lil bit, loss 100 bucks, drank again, got hungover again, slept summore, ate, tooks some photos, hanged out with buddies till 4 am playing the guitar, drank a heeluvalot more, gave angpows, got bankrupt, ate slept, went to Kemaman to visit my in laws, gave ang pows summore, slept, drank, took summore photos....the list goes on. And yeah, nothing much happened :)

I don't know about you, but I find it very dissapointing not to hear fire crackers exploding and lion dances tong-chang-ing around town anymore. Yes, you may hear some pops here and there, and drums banging from afar, but CNY is not the usual CNY anymore. What's CNY without the loud crackers?? It's like, what's Hari Raya like without the ketupat and rendang, and what's deepavali like without the curry and papadam. And to make matters worse, even the lions seemed so much skinnier. Their dance step was crappy, the drummer was yawning, the other members were smoking and talking away, couldn't care less to lead the lion's head and the poor fellow at the back gets to smell his partner's bottom. Overall, I rate this year's CNY a humble 5/10. It could've been 6 but due to the fact that I had to give away angpows, a minus 1 is a fair deal.

How about you?? You feel me mates.....

I ate and ate and ate, gambled a little bit, received angpows, visited friends, watched movies, watched lion dance, relatives came over, chit chat with friends, slept, read some blogs...and repeat the above. LOL!

yeah ..somehow i also feel that CNY is no longer the same. Maybe I should plan my programs for CNY. It's good to bring back firecrackers but maybe it should be play at designated areas so that houses won't get burned again.

yup...same here for me. eat, drink, distribute angpows, sleep...nothing that exciting. oh, thank goodness i can still hear those loud "tong-chiang-ing" of lion dances (not many though) and fire-crackers (not that exciting when we have some morons burning them at 2-3am!).

back to work as usual on monday...i bet it's gonna be a l-o-n-g s-l-o-w MONDAY..sigh...
