Finally felt some CNY festive mood over the weekend… shopping malls were jammed with frenzy shopping, and pasar malam was crowded with people hunting for CNY delicacies and accessories.

Was trying to do something illegal, buying firecrackers, but no luck.

CNY without firecrackers will never be the same. I seriously think the banning of most firecrackers are dubious… there are probably more people injured (or killed) in car accidents in a day than would be injured by firecrackers in a year… perhaps we should ban driving instead.

Btw, I am getting tired of CNY. Traffic jams, and same old questions from relatives every year… what are you doing now… Why not working (they never understood the freelance concept)… got girlfriend or not… wah you are getting fatter each year (yes, thank you very much)… blah blah blah…

Gosh, am I getting too old to enjoy CNY?

    Johsy… the dilemma of singles in CNY lol.

    cp1… same to you :)

    RM… my hometown is a village, some of the authorities have been staying in the village for years as well; they learnt well to close one eye even without the kopi $.

    Ya people still give me angpau… even my friends that got married and younger than me give me angpau too lol.

    Nah I don’t really care about single or married. I believe angpau is supposed to be given from elders to young ones, so my nieces/nephews will get their share from me when they grew older. For now they will get some gifts from me.

    Guys where got throw one… girls throw, guys catch :)

    Happy CNY.
