haha. i'll say those to my uncle soon. wahaha. (evil laugh)

i hope we'll (my family & i) will go somewhere on CNY. im getting tired sitting at home like a granny. tinggal nak menjahit je. nasib baik tak pandai.
if not surely i'll call myself a granny. haha.
oh. grandmother in mandarin is nainai. :)
i learned that yesterday. part of those new words. haha.

lots of people said i look chinese. & many got confused.
they would come up to me & said "are you chinese?"
hahaha. they said i have that 'chinese' look. mata sepet. yeahh. i got that a lot. gee..thanks.
some even said i should go celebrate CNY.

cant wait to go to the mall. im sure there'll be dragon dance everywhere.
its kinda noisy. coz its so loud. duhh. my eardrums nearly smashed bcoz of it.
but its enjoyable. i love to watch those dragon dance.
its amazing how those dancers can dance perfectly well with those costumes & dragon heads on.
haha. :)
i love the part where the dragon blink their eyes. aww its so cute! haha.

when it comes to decoration, most of the houses here semua tanak kalah
decorate it with red lanterns outside of their house.
its like, part of their traditions. its nice. i mean, its all red & shiny. banyak ong maaa.
i love to pass by their house & admire those decorations.

oh && my next door neighbour usually give us angpau.
sometimes RM5 sometimes RM10.
ng bāo nài! heee. :D

so, to those whose celebrating, have a joyous Chinese New Year!
the year of the ox. xin nián kuài le. :)
