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.....
