I mean the Chinese New Year bug. Have you been to the shopping malls lately? Gee, they are like Chinese temples, aren’t they? So many lanterns, so red and so packed.
I went to Sungai Wang/BB Plaza three times in five days. I was at Ampang Park twice in two days. Then, I was caught in the crazy, frenzied parents pack at Jusco, Midvalley on a Sunday. OMG, the parents buy stuffs for their kids like there is no tomorrow.
OK, I did not particularly like Sungai Wang/BB Plaza but my kids just have to go there almost everyday to buy their skateboarding stuffs. And Ampang Park is just opposite my hotel so I went there for meals with the kids.
Sungai Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur
I was at MidValley during the Jusco sale because I was in an emergency situation. You see, I put my kids’ clothes meant for the wedding but these brats did not bring them along to KL. At the last minute, in less than 3 hours, I had to grab some decent shirts for them.
So after rubbing shoulders, backside, frontside with so many kiasu Chineses who are so eager to welcome Chinese New Year, I also got bitten by the new year bug.
Nah, you finished listening to the recording liao hor? (I hope you did turn on your speaker and hear some Hokkien announcement?) Remember hor, tomorrow 12th January 2006, surf over to Tok3Tok4 and see what he is planning for us bloggers to do. In case you are curious which lengjai voice is, that voice belongs to John PenangPodcast. Awww….LinPeh, we (the silais) are so disappointed that the voice is not yours.
