a dinner to have!

i almost had the worst Chinese New Year's eve dinner anyone can have in their life... I was almost forced into having instant noodle as the last meal for the year of Cow...

well, as i am far away from my family members and unable to join the annual reunion dinner, my friend and myself here in Australia INITIALLY planned to have a pot-luck dinner with all of us here to at least make up for whatever that we can't have... however, in the early evening, my friends here smartly get themselves burgers and fish & chips from the nearby shop and then refuses to have anymore dinner and i ended up having to go out to Subway to just grab sandwich which is a better option than to have instant noodle..

after going out and tapao-ing the sandwich and returning to my place, my friend and myself walked past our senior's house and just decided to pop in to say hi... as we entered the house, we were all greeted by them wearing red saying GONG HEI FATT CHOI.... those words instantly brought backt he warmth that i've been yearning for to get for this festive season... we were then invited to join them for the LOU SANG (tossing & mixing of salad which symbolises unity and prosperity) and dinner... seriously, those were the best feeling i've ever had here in australia and those were the petty things that really touch my heart...

although it was nothing fancy like prawns and fishes (i miss fish!), we had 2 chickens and some vegetables and we really treated one another like a family members from different background and race... this is what i really called 1Malaysia where everyone really just sit together and celebrate whatever season it is...
i am unable to have all these...

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU AND DO ENJOY THE TIME WITH YOUR LOVED ONES...

as well, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
