Today is the day we visit our other relatives
-after a day of sitting at Ama’s, waiting for other relatives to come bearing Ang Pows,
which was only THREE FAMILIES.-
AND this year, there’s only ONE TAI REPRESENTATIVE.
-CCC wanted to stay at first…
but changed her mind JUST BEFORE her dad bought the bus ticket
for her to go back with T and bro–
Sooo, they left for KL after we left. =(
Every year before the year before last year, we ALWAYS visit FOUR houses.
The atap house in Butterworth
-with the vine so and we would be TARZANS and JANES-
and there we would pop empty drink boxes
Then, Lunch at some place which has
at the outside of
the restaurant for Chicken Rice
Next, the The Green house
with awesomeness treats, AIR CONDITIONER
and a big arse TV with ASTRO.
-IN A SEPERATE ROOM!!!-
We would croseed opposite the road to some house close to the sea
where the MOTHBALLS HOUSE is
-the one with spoiled, expired goodies and not soo much in the $$.
But Ama always enjoys chatting with her since its only ONCE a year-
Lastly, the LONGAN/swing House at irawadi road
where they HAVE a swing at their yard and ALWAYS serve longan drinks they MADE
=) YUPP, they have air-conditioner and television but all in one lil living room.
since last year, there has been a change in route for our 2nd day of CNY,
which is VISTING DAY.
AND there was ANOTHER CHANGE made this year.
So, lets begin to hit the road, shall we?
We left around 9am, and YAY I finished loading songs into myself’s DS AFTER jogging =D
This year SURE IS different as BRO drove, so, we had mum, me, bro, T and Shi Hao in our car.
First stop was BUTTERWORTH, but a NEW HOUSE in a residential area. A PROPER HOUSE.
On the way, me and T were getting pumped,
Thanks to My Chem R. mostly X)
T started playing old skool games with bro and Shi Hao like we played in Primary
…ahh, awesomeness childhood…
THEN, Jian Wei suddenly was saying how this visiting on CNY -Bai Nian- tradition will fade and dissapear when its our generation since most of us will be all around the world.
they started going on about we should BUY ONE BIG HOUSE here in Malaysia where we will ALL COME BACK TO ON CNY…maybe BUY A STREET OF HOUSES and name it “Tan-Tai-Khoo” Residence…
Next, we went to Tesco’s food court for lunch since mum needed to get some groceries too.
I had some malay rice. STILL CAN’T BELIEVE I splashed my drink at T…thats sooo not me.
or IS IT?
-I’m DEEPLY SORRY for my rudeness-
He and Hs were spitting ice with straw all around the place…
Then, to the next house, T left for dreamland…
The next house was quite new too, and is located somewhere around QBM.
It WAS the green house’s family, just that…no more GREEN HOUSE =(
The MOTH BALL HOUSE was skipped because the lady there passed on.
THE LAST AND STILL STANDING HOUSE,
is the SWING HOUSE!!!
This time, Shu Yuan and Family were there!
we went to Aunt Yee Ying’s place for dinner.
My nano took FOREVER TO LOAD, I CAN’T BELIEVE IT…WHY SOOO LONG TO SYNC???
T went with us as he is staying with us from today on.
When we were there,
Yi Farn was asking me about ‘my special friend’ and going all OMG-ish.
T felt sooo out of place at first since bro moved on to Yi Farn
and I was receiving Ang Pows…until Uncle Ong turned on the TV,
and bro joined us.
Awesomeness food, good company but unawesome sound.
THE BEST was the PORK RIBS which was MARINATED for ONE WEEK!!!
THE BEST I’VE HAD!!! Thanks YI FARN.
There’s the FIRST EPISODE of AMAZING RACE TODAY!!!
This season looks interesting, A LOT of different people.
I couldn’t enjoy the show much since people started pouring in but drowning the sound of the TV..
After Amazing Race and an Amazing Dinner spread, me, bro and T left for home
since dad was going there.
AMAZING RACE BROKEBACKS X)
Sticking to Roots,
