The Eve of Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is just in a few hours. That is odd, because I've never expected Chinese New Year to come so quick.
It is so quick that I even have to buy new clothings such as jeans, socks, shoes and erm.. underwear *shy* at the last minute. I've already bought many T-shirts enough to wear for the first 5 days of CNY at least.
A few days ago, when I was in a supermarket, I overheard a customer asking the staff of the supermarket about a particular firecracker on sale.
The customer asked if the firecracker has been licensed and approved by the government to which the staff promptly answered with a "Yes".
Then today, my uncle got these firecrackers already. Wondering how loud and how strong these firecrackers are, I persuaded my uncle to lit them up.
It was so freaking loud! Not as loud as colour flower though, but very loud. I almost couldn't feel my ears, heck, I didn't even get to cover my ears when it blasted.
The real bad thing about these firecrackers is that the fuse aren't strong enough to hold the crackers together and they keep falling all the time.This is what you get after your crackers are blasted.
Also today, I've received a few ang paus. It's may be early, and it's not even New Years yet, but some family do give ang paus on the eve of CNY.
How glad am I today. I'm gonna save these money up to buy something which I really really want.
Wishing everyone here a Happy Chinese New Year!
