Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
This Chinese New Year was quite different from last year. Firstly, since my grandmother passed away recently, I thought that the family wouldn't celebrate due to the superstitious tradition Chinese have. Turns out I was wrong. They did celebrate it, and my cousin asked me why I wasn't there yet. I was curious too. Then I asked my mom and found out that the extended family didn't approve of uncle Ben, my mom's boyfriend, so my mom decided not to go. And she never bothered telling me till I asked. Zzz.
Okay, so I didn't celebrate the new year with all the relatives like usual.
Secondly, it was the first time I celebrated with my family only. We had a dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Funny, celebrating Chinese New Year in a Japanese restaurant. And thirdly, after that I went to Citra and Hannah's place. Cindy, Daniel and Vincent came over too. For the CHC people, Vincent is the POS broken neck guy! LOL. Anyhoo, this was the first new year I spent with friends instead of family. They're all Indonesians except for Daniel, who's from Sabah. So yeah, they're "homeless" 'cause they didn't go back to their hometowns this time round.
We ate together in their home, and the guys all spammed Left 4 Dead on my laptop. After chatting and slacking we watched some lame horror/comedy Cantonese movie The Vampire Who Admires Me. Hannah and Citra went to sleep and only the 4 of us watched the next movie, The Good, The Bad and The Weird. The movie lasted bloody long! By the time the movie was halfway through, I was the only person left awake. Worst still, I had the smallest chair. Daniel slept on the floor, but he gets the whole floor! Zzz. After praying a while on their balcony, I tried sleeping. It was 6:30am.
I woke up at 8am hearing zombies moan and machine guns shooting. Turns out the guys were playing on my laptop. I slept and woke up around 11 plus, due to a VERY loud Citra talking on the phone. Eventually that woke up the rest of us and we all called our relatives to wish them prosperity and blessings for the new year. We ate a bit more and watched a bit of TV and I went back home after that.
I went to my grandaunt's place later on to celebrate with some other relatives, not the usuals at Kluang. I ended up watching Defiance in a room after a while. Not bad, the movie. Although it's a little draggy at parts. It's a World War II story involving a true story about Jews. So yeah, I guess you can kinda know what to expect.
Speaking of war, Hamas idiots bombed Israeli patrol a week after agreeing to the ceasefire and having all Israeli troops pullout. What the hell. One Hamas representative said they never agreed to a full ceasefire, but only a lull in the fighting. Seriously, what the hell. And you know what's the best quote from him? "The Zionists are responsible for any aggression." I rest my case.
Oh, and there's one thing I noticed, in the midst of all the differences I had this Chinese new year. Everytime I wear red, I somehow end up taking pictures with a lot of girls. Don't believe me?
See? Even the toilet sign is a female one. And its red too.
Again, more proof. Most of the cellgroup wore red on the Chinese new year service. We sat near the front too, so it was like rows of red. Heh.
Okay, Issey is in the pic too. Plus Ai Lee. But we learnt in chemistry about redundance right? LOL. Kidding!
See? When I wear red I end up being surrounded by girls.
