Alrighty, Chinese New Year is going to be over. If you haven’t collect enough angpows, you only have Saturday and Sunday to claim them.
Remember to eat some pengat to end the celebration with a sweet ending.
If you are single, desperately seeking husband, go do yourself a favour. Go throw oranges into the sea when the moon was at its brightest and make a wish – tim kam chua hor ang which means throw oranges get good husband. If you bachelor, go throw a drum inside. But wait, get those Indian drums where the middle is thinner. If you go throw the whole bu lang sai (lion dance) round drum and you get a wife as round, don’t blame me wokay?
Ya hor, talk about lion dance, there is going to be a 100 lions (or is it 1,000) lion dance event in Melaka or something. But I am not sure the date is this weekend or next weekend.
So, let’s wish our little piggie farewell. It has been a good Chinese New Year for me ‘cos I don’t do a thing of Chinese New Year this year. Nice!
I have also survived more than a week on vegetarian foods. Now you see it (those obscence prawns and squids) and now, you
don’t ‘cos they have all been removed. Arrggh…I hope I don’t go crazy by week two, doing these sort of things. Removing temptations. I ate a bowl of what I considered food but what my toddler referred as vomit.
So, have a happy Chap Goh Meh and may you enjoy this Chinese Valentine’s full moon night. Watch our for wolves, ladies. And men, watch out for blood-sucking wuleiching.
