What have you been up to the past week? Visiting, eating, and overcome by the heat wave!
Funny, the people you visit during the new year are mostly relatives whom you don't visit for the rest of the year!! And once a year, you ask the same questions you did the previous year. Likewise they ask you the same questions too. Then you "exchange" ang pows. Then you say good-bye, see you next year!! Hahahaha!!!
I am spared from this yearly rituals. Although I went visiting two places once a year. That's not too bad. Some of you would have added the total to double digits. And out-station too.
After that you have a good sleep, and then you visit the real friends and the genuine caring relatives. Maybe your busy schedule was not like that. Well and good. Different people have different ways of celebrating the Chinese New Year.
For me it was as usual a very quiet affair. But you can't simply avoid being tired out. Yes, the spring cleaning. And we don't have a maid to help out. It is still new year though. And Chap Goh Meh is next Sunday. Being in Penang, you got the opportunities to be with the crowd, celebrating the events. For me, I live a quiet lifestyle hidden away in one quiet corner in the mainland, watching birds visiting my garden with their melodious whistling. The tinggling of my wind chimes add to the stereo effect.
May I wish you peace and good health.
