First, I was thinking "ok..... let's write a blog post on the my favourite catch up with the friends while I was in Malaysia..." and it happened to be the CNY gathering @ my house and so... "it shall now be a full Chinese New Year related post" :D
I know... CNY happened two and a half months ago and I am only writing this up now... -.- but HEHE :D I have really been
But but, I still am sticking to my
So...., here goes, the CNY spirit :D
And a new found love this year, the Japanese kind of 鱼生! I LOVEEEEE IT!!!! Had two different plates this year and they were both AWESOMEEEEE! I love the sashimi!!! Of course. And I love the seaweed and the tempura batter crumbs and the jellyfishes!!! Plus I am sure the sauce is different. I like this version sooooooo much more!!
This year, since my grandma was ill, we've decided we weren't going back to Raub(my hometown) for CNY. But then, on the first day of CNY, it just felt so different and just as tho something was missing. Soo.... we went on an impromptu day trip back to Raub just to feel some CNY spirit :D
Because..., every year without fail, since I was a baby, we will definitely head back to Raub and celebrate the eve and CNY there. I am so used to the smell of food and it's preparations and the smell and the smoke of eyes watering joysticks and the loudness of laughters of people and gambling sessions. So, of course this year felt different. But at least we did make a day trip and had dinner with the rest of the relatives and for that day, it felt like a usual CNY celebration :)
And the next agenda was, having CNY dinner with the boyfriend and his family and my mum :)
Next was, attending an open house @ Ulu Kelang with mum. It was a garden/outdoor thing and the food was really good!
After the open house, mum dropped me off @ SS15's Tong Pak Fu to meet up with the boyfriend for after dinner dessert. As he was there with his friends and I just went and join in the fun :D
Whilst we are on the bf's friends topic, I also joined some of his friends(CX,CY and JW) and went for brunch with them in Klang :)
It was superrr heavy brunch ok... Ate rice and soup and meat and all that at 11am!
Then after lunch, they've decided to gamble together and after all the deliberations, the small gambling session was held @ my house. They wanted to mahjong so yeaps :)
First was a BBQ party with them and then numerous gambling sessions and movies and lunches and yumcha sessions too :) Nice!
And onto my favourite part..,
Out little house party session went on until 4 something 5 in the morning man. From 9pm! or almost 10pm to be exact :) It was so much fun just catching up and doing stupid and funny things as tho all of us were still in high school together!
Even after all that games and drinking, we even sat for an hour more together and just talk. Talk about life mostly.. Its really nice to gather the group once in a while and just catch up with one and another. Always always nice :)
We were missing quite a few peeps that night cause they were away at their hometowns. They were greatly missed! I never knew so many of them stays in KL during the festive period as I usually would be in Raub for the first few days.. Even the boyfriend who wanted to be around badly, had to stay in Malacca for the night. Ngaaww... I know I sure have had missed him that night!
Seriously thank you to the digital age where you could just keep in contact with the smartphones. Without them being at the other end of a 4-inch screen on the whatsapp group chat that we have, I think my life overseas would be so boring and alone... And they keep me going in the sense that, I'll always be able to talk to them whenever and wherever and about anything at all! We will check up on one and another if anyone happens to have had a rough day to support each other or just randomly talk about girly things together and cheers ourselves up :) I miss them! I really do..
That's it for the backlogs today :) Not sure what will be coming next, but I'll try to keep with a post a week. Been having some pretty rough days and writing is therapeutic to me at times. So yeapp... Until my next post, take care! (and also send me lots of luck because I think I'll need it... =/)
Lots of love,
