Things to say

27 Jan

There are so many things to talk about the CNY I had. I’ll summary up one by one in detail.

22/1/12 (CNY eve)

1) 1pm – On the way to my father’s hometown in Pekan Jabi, Segamat. Saw my first police road block along the Kuala Lumpur – Seremban Expressway that leads to the SMART Tunnel. The police were doing their job, carrying out the Ops Sikap to prevent road users from breaking the rules and ensure safety on the road.


2) It’s smooth along the way but traffic was slow from Seremban to Nilai. The duration was about 15 minutes.

3) Saw a small hill with many big natural rocks on it in Gemas, Negeri Sembilan. Failed to capture a picture of it. It’s very spectacular.

4) Passed by the Natural Feedlot Corporation in Gemas too. But I failed to see how it looked like. 😦 That company is the one that caused a lot of commotion in Malaysia owned by the husband of Minister of Women, Family and Community Development.

Her family were alleged of misusing the public fund granted by the government for the corporation’s development. They used it for luxurious cars and travel instead.

5) Reached Segamat at about 4pm. Ate reunion dinner at Koko Tree restaurant at 8pm. My father’s household is a big one so we occupied 5 tables, each table sat approximately 10 people .

List of dishes:

  • Leng Pen (冷盆)
  • Cabbage
  • Prawn
  • Steamed Tilapia Fish
  • Fried Chicken (No bones)
  • Ostrich meat (Not sure if it’s true or not)
  • Cuttlefish (Sotong)
  • Yam Basket
  • Longan dessert (龙眼甜品)

6) A magnificent fireworks set off during midnight by the neighbour at the front street. But it’s slightly later this year and the fireworks that neighbour set is much lesser.

7) Received angpaos from second uncle’s wife and fourth uncle. Curious why they started giving angpao during CNY eve.

23/1/12  (First day of the first lunar month or first day of CNY)

Received angpaos from all the uncles. Went to the usual 2 houses to ‘bai nian’ and take angpaos. But I just go there to eat and drink. Haha. Ate some weird biscuit from Thailand, prawn crackers and drank chrysanthemum tea, sea cucumber tea and Ribena. #likeaboss.jpg Before going back to grandmother’s house, our family went to the shrine to pray for good blessings.


Mum’s back pain worsened. Left grandmother’s house at 1pm. Reached KL. Clean the house and clothes before going to popo’s (maternal grandmother) house (7.42pm). It’s almost 11pm when we reached there at Menglembu, Perak. Popo’s watching Dicey Business that time. Learned that gong gong (maternal grandfather) went back with yiyi (aunty) to KL to treat his unknown illness.


1) Ate noodles at feizai’s. I bought a pink shirt with frills and ribbons. My father bought 艾炙 stick + re-fillers for RM70 at the market. (LOL)

2) Tried to fly our kite in evening outside the house and at the road, FAIL.

3) Mum went to have  a gathering with Shirley and her other friends.
