Chinese New Year Rush
This is my 2nd blog post in 1 night and that is so unusual of me to do so!
When I heard SK Thamby complained about boring CNY, I can't help getting a confused reaction. My local KL born friends complained the same thing yearly. I asked myself whether I love rushing home to my kampung? Will LeuMas enjoy being in Penang like me? The answer is YES! I love going home if there is no jam and I escaped the jam yesterday coz many were smart to leave before 5pm rush hour.
Penang is full of Chinese community and the festive mood is definitely there! You can hear drums and cymbals clashing almost the whole day with so many lion dances prancing in every street. The fire crackers are lighted up like nobody's business with loud bangs & booms throughout the 2 days. The smell of burnt cracker's gun powder is lovely with shreds of red crackers paper strewn on the street is a lovely sight. The mood is always here in Penang.
I am not pure Chinese but speaks like Banana and believes strongly in Taoism & Feng Shui. So I hunted for a Cow underwear all over Klang Valley until I found this Moo-Moo in a shop. I believe that I must wear a lembu undies on the 1st Day so that my bradder will become a strong bull like Rawhide! Rolling! Rolling! Rolling! Hee Yah! Giddy Up!
On my huge sofa, I packed so many shirts and only jeans for this year. I carted home with lots of special cookies and beer to serve the many guests who come to wish my parents.
Before I left home, I prayed my Tu Di Gong with lots of Gold Paper, food, fruits and the most important "Nien Gou" so that the sweet glutinous rice would stick his mouth when he reports to the Emperor of Heavens that Twilight has been a good boy lah for 2008. Forgive him for his bloody mouths, driving on emergency lanes and yakking on the phone while driving. Please bless all the bloggers who post comments in Twilight's Blog too!
The feeling is always lovely when we arrive home to Penang on the bridge with the welcoming Golden Sunset!
