CNY @ Hometown!

大家好!新年快乐!恭喜发财!蛇年行大运!

Oh, 身为华乐前主席,我是很应该帮忙我的club promote 一下他们很成功的演出的,是不是?是啦~~ 而且今年是蛇年,他们还演奏“金蛇狂舞”, 很 appropriate, right? :D

ENJOY! :D

I'm really proud of these guys :') Hahaha!



So anyway, like every other year, I went back to my hometown on CNY eve to celebrate the first few days of Chinese New Year. 

The jam wasn't that bad. Ever since that year, I forgot which year, I think it was when I was form 4, "traffic jam" during CNY will never be the same again. That year, my relatives who were also going back to Perak from KL said to us, they left home at about 2am. Usually, it only takes 3-4 hours drive to get back to Perak from KL, but when they reached Perak, it was 2 in the afternoon. AFTERNOON. That's like.. 12 hours! And then there's my own experience, but mine was going back to KL from Perak. We left Perak at about 12pm or 1pm-ish, and when we reached KL, it was 1am. 1 freakin' AM. Can you imagine that? You can't do anything. Just sit in the car for 12 hours. You can't even stop at the rest area because there is no space for you to stop. You can't get down of the car to stretch, you can't do anything if you're bored, you can't sleep properly because you're in a car. What if you get hungry? Or worse, what if you have to pee? EVEN WORSE, what if you have to SHIT? LOL. 

This year, it took us about 5 or 6 hours to get back to Perak from KL; and the same amount of time to get back to KL from Perak. 5 or 6 hours is nothing compared to 12 hours. That's like, half a day. Spent in a car. LOL. #ridiculous

Feels great to be home :) Hometown is home. It's always fun to be with cousins and relatives! Hahaha! In the afternoon, I don't know why, but I watched 5 episodes of Glee S4 STRAIGHT on my cousin's laptop. LOL. After every episode, I look at the time and think the same thing, which was, "Ahh, still early." Hahaha! Yes, 我等吃罢了. XD

But then I still went downstairs to see if I can help with anything, but apparently there isn't, my grandma, dad and bro are killing, chopping and washing the crabs; Min was chopping fish, meat and something, and everything else were all pretty much done, so Wen and I just stood there and camwhored.... A lot. Hahaha! Btw, my grandma's a pro at chopping crabs hahahaha!

We always have steambot for reunion dinner, and it's always fun XD Know how EVERY YEAR, the adults will always say, "你们小孩子要先吃你们可以先去吃了." 小孩子. We're all feeling that we're growing up and getting old already, so, still being called "小孩子" makes us happy. Hahahaha! 

You know how when you eat steambot, the soup always taste better towards the end? Yea, adults, we found out. 

“哇,那个汤有味道了。”
“原来这个就是为什么那些大人每一年都叫我们小孩子先吃...”
“是咯是咯!然后用的理由就是 ‘怕你们小孩子会饿啊’..”
“是咯,原来不是,是因为那个汤到最后才会有味道,每次利用我们小孩子..”
“现在被我们小孩子发现了咯!”
“是咯,发现了的时候就不是小孩子了...”
“是咯!”

Hahahahaha! The random things we say at dinner XD

After dinner, we played with the webcam. Hahaha!

One time last year I went back to hometown, and then Wen and I started this crazy webcam camwhore thing, and she named the album Siao Kia 1.0, and it looked a little something like this:

 Ta-da! 

Siao Kia 1.0, when we both still have black hair. HAHAHA!


Now, EVOLUTION:

Siao Kia 2.0 - CNY Special Edition! Guest starring Hui Jun gugu and Ah Min jiejie! :D 
HAHAHAHA! High on steambot. Is that possible? XD


Also, this year, one of my uncle who I have not seen in a very very very long time, came back :D The kids all love him. Hahaha! Before this, they all like to stick to my dad, because my dad likes to kacau kids and play with them XD Now that my uncle is back, they all go to him. I even heard one part, where they were all like super amazed and went, "Waaahhhhh....你有 muscle...." The next thing I saw was that they were all on the floor doing sit ups. HAHAHA! Oh kids.. 

See how Eason is trying to show his muscles? HAHAHA! Adorable, ain't it? :D


Then they started looking back at the pictures we took on our last two family gatherings. I really miss those times. I love it when we all get together :D 

CNY eve night, I was Wen's one night driver. The number of times I made her almost get a heart attack, missed turns she asked me to make, not slowing down at bumpers because I can't see it because it was at night.... HAHAHAHA! I'll work on that. XD



大年初一到! 

Went to a few temples in the morning. The last temple was in Taiping, which I haven't went in a few years. My shoes were super tight that day! Don't know if it was me who didn't try on the shoes properly before purchasing it, or my feet grew again. HAHAHA! Remember how I mentioned a looooooooong time ago that I can no longer fit into my pointe shoes? XD But then my mum said it maybe it was because objects will 遇热膨胀,遇冷收缩. Looooooool hahahaha!

My popo :)

With lengzai uncle! :D HAHAHA


Later, we went to have lunch at some hotel :D

Ah Qin jiejieeeeeee :D


During lunch, they were saying something about girls wearing bikini and walking around. We couldn't hear properly because we were talking ourselves and also enjoying our meal. I was mostly eating and "eavesdropping". LOL. Then there's this conversation between my uncle and my mum.

“他们讲哪里?”
“出去外面转左。”
“HARR?! 女孩子穿着 bikini 走来走去啊?!!”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

“OH 不是不是! 我以为你问我厕所在哪里!”
“OH! 不是,我问你他们讲哪里的女孩子穿 bikini 走来走去,你还可以答到这么准,外面转左,吓我一跳。”

HAHAHAHAHAHA!! I almost choked on my delicious food.


Afternoon, we all went back to Er Gu's house to eat bak gua, drink geng geng, and taste A LOT of cookies and stuff made bu Ah Yun jiejie. Then I talked to Ah Qin a lot :D After that, we went back home because other relatives were at home waiting for us already. Maybe because we went home late, after wishing Happy Chinese New Year, receiving angpaus, went upstairs to put my handbag and lay in bed for like 5 minutes and went back downstairs, they all left. LOL. 

Then I went to take a shower and watched Glee. Hahaha! Then Chingyee jiejie, Minyee jiejie and Ah Wen all came back. They rested for a while, showered, and then we headed to Alor Pongsu together. But by time we reached there, the food were almost all finished. LOOOOL. So we only got to eat laksa and satay, but it was all delicious :D Watched fireworks and lion dance. The "lions" danced around and into the crowd. When "it" was close to us, my aunt grabbed "it" and said, "来来来,拍照拍照!" HAHAHA! And "it" really just stood there to take picture. After that they set the "lion" free, but when they checked, the picture didn't come out very nice, so my aunt went CHASING the "lion" and said, "回来回来!" HAHAHAHAHAHA! Omg. I kept peeking inside the lion head to see if the person inside is laughing or feeling very annoyed XD

Later at night, went to eat Roti Canai with some cousins. On the way there, 

“我们去哪里吃?”
“去吃印度餐,roti canai 那些”
“Har?Zomok 吃这些 leh?”
“因为好吃!真的是很好吃!Roti tissue,roti bom 也是很好吃。”
“其实什么是 roti bom?”
“Roti bom 是... Roti 咯..”
“会爆炸的啊?”
“会啦,因为它很好吃,所以你吃了会...好像有一种爆炸的感觉...”
“好吃到爆啊?”
“差不多是这样的意思啦.”  


你看我们讲废话讲到多认真.....

When we were ordering,

“你要吃什么?”
“Errr...Roti... 普通的,那个普通的..”
“Roti canai 啦!”
“Roti pu tong!”
“Roti biasa 又不可以哦,等下他拿一片面包给你!”

HAHAHAHAHA!

Roti canai came first, so Chingyee jiejie ate first, then our roti boms came, and when we were about to eat, Chingyee jiejie suddenly put her fork and spoon down and shouted, “走开!快点走开!” We all got a shock and all got very nervous and asked, "ZOMOK?" “什么事?” “什么东西?” And she said, “要爆炸了。” AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Omg I laughed so long I cannot. Laughed till my tears came spurting out XD 我笑点低到可怜. Then Ling Xiang said, “现在的人越老越幼稚啊!” then we all got reminded of our aunt CHASING after the "lion" and then we all laughed very hard again.

Then there were people putting fireworks. We heard the "POM!" sound, and again Chingyee jiejie said, “那个人打包 roti bom 回家。” HAHAHAHA!! 



年初二。

Went to Juru with family and popo. Didn't do much there. Just ate a lot. Hahaha! After the visit, we went to Tambun for seafood :D Theeeeennnnnnnnnnn......... I slept all the way back home. 

We had Ramlee's burger for dinner. LOL. Then went home, bro, Chingyee jiejie and Wen played cards a bit. Went out to buy drinks, came home, and chat a bit with them. Random chats XD I love those funny talks and chats we share :D I love spending time with them.

This year no one gamble! LOL. Which I kinda like as I don't gamble. So if they don't gamble as well, means they can spend more time to "play" with me. Hahaha! I sound like a kid. LOL.

We skyped Yin Huan, and then we watched The Collection. LOL. 新年看恐怖片.



年初三,回吉隆坡。



Chinese New Year is one of my favourite holidays :)
