CNY this year wasn’t that exciting, I reached home on 29th jan, the day before reunion dinner, from Grenoble. However we did not go in to jb for the annual reunion dinner due to the massive traffic jam. My dad gave up after he reached woodlands and saw that the jam would take at least 3h to clear immigration. So our family just had a quiet dinner at home, spaghetti with prawns.
Next day 初一 we stayed at home the whole day until late afternoon when we left the house to go to popo’s place. Dinner was good and meeting up with my maternal cousins. We played blackjack after dinner, quite fun. We didn’t want to mj because our uncle always seemed to win and our debts would just increase exponentially. At least with blackjack the game could last longer with a set principal amount.
初二 I went two of my friends in town. Nobody comes to our house to visit cos my mum doesn’t like it. I didn’t wan to stay at home the whole day so I decided to meet up with two friends. Lunch with nic at namnam and tea with Siti at jones the grocer. Nice afternoon spent catching up with friends. Most of the shops in the shopping centre were still closed because it is a public holiday.
初三 went to mins place to visit her mum and pass her stuff. At first I thought it would be weird to visit their house because the gf is not around but it turned out ok. Then went over to Ivy’s place with steph. Surprisingly we chatted the whole afternoon and only the two of us from tms group were free, or rather the rest did not even reply. That more or less sums up my pretty boring cny this year. Wish I was still in France and enjoying the cool weather, plain nature.
