Celebrations...

It has been a while since I've blogged something. If I had waited for another day, it would be exactly 1 month since I've posted something. ;-)

It has been a very taxing month as the company's 1st half for FY2007-2008 had closed in December/January. So, I had been involved in quite a number of activities around this.

So, I was very glad that CNY (Chinese New Year) fell near the weekend, which meant I could take some time off! (^ ^)

I was also glad that some of my team members managed to come back to Malaysia for their holidays as well too. It is certainly a time for celebration with friends and relatives, even though the economic outlook wasn't so great due to the Mortgage Subprime Crisis.

It was certainly a lot of fun to have a "Sao Gong" dinner a few days before the CNY holidays started to signify the end of another lunar year, for a job well done. Drinks flowed like a river throughout the night and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It was a pretty "quiet" dinner where we occupied a few tables near a wedding party. We even participated for the Yam Seng (cheers), giving the party a bit of "
oomph". (^ ^)

This year, the CNY mood was quite lacking, but despite that, my Dad wanted to put up his traditional fire-cracker lights near the doorway. He would turn it on every night for the new year until the 15-day celebration is over.

I had to boost the exposure for this shot as my living room is quite dark. The lights sure looks like it might want to explode at any minute!

Snoopy had a great time this CNY as her cousin came over and also, introduced to a new set of cousins!! She plans to blog about it later. ;-)

A lot of oranges are lying about the house. However, having too much of it can cause constipation!!

This CNY had been quite fun even though I lost my voice and got quite sick after the sao gong dinner. I managed to eat some yummy food and reconnect with my family.

I am a little sad that I've not had a celebration with my close friends, whom funnily for this year, seem to not contact me at all. Hmmmmm... (-___-)

Hope that you had a cracking celebration!!

  7. Subprime hasn't reach malaysia yet... our banks are still giving out loans like nobody's business. :P

    Yeah, you are right... I too feel that CNY mood was quite lacking too. Maybe we're getting too old to enjoy CNY like how we did during our younger days.. haha
