Happy Hop Hop Year Everyone!
Its been quite sometime again since my last update, but would not forget to send my new year greetings through my blog.
This year celebration would be slightly different for me, as life after marriage, I would need to spent my lunar year back at Sibu wheres Alex’s hometown is. Things went smoothly, the reunion was great that brings everyone closer. Although I can’t be at Miri during the first few days of CNY, however through FB i’m still be able to update every now and then.
Celebrating Lunar Year in Sibu I do have some kind of different experiences. Slightly different from Miri, where it’s much more festive feel compare to many other places. Its very common during the big festive for all the folks to be back to their hometown, where’s the home sweet home is. <3
Alex is the big fan’s of Sibu Kampua. Almost every night we must go out to have Kampua for supper. But that’s what everyone in Sibu is doing. The coffee shop’s business is super duper good during the festive season. Price hike? No worries, a lot of people would still afford the RM2.50 lard kampua!
As days getting closer to the CNY… the streets were jammed everywhere. So the best thing to avoid the jam is, buy some DVDs and stay home for movie marathon!
A day before CNY .. Reunion Dinner..
I’m not a good cook, so I dare not to offer help to cook for the reunion dinner. Since my MIL is a great cook, she cooks great dishes, so me and the sisters would just be her assistant in preparing the ingredients. We had 8 dishes for the dinner, Fabulous!!!!
The most important, there must be the FISH, to be 年年有余。。。
And before the dinner is serve, the fire crackers must be lit. That’s the Sibu culture, but in Miri we did it after the dinner. Did i mention, we done the dinner before 4pm? That’s really early! Hahaha!
The lucky thing was, Sibu was flood free during this CNY, meaning that its gonna be a good year ahead!
Will post up all the gathering and visiting pictures on the next post.
Alex and Mary wishes all the friends and readers, have a prosperous new year!
