A lesson on the 7th day of CNY

February 20th 2010 8:20 am

It's the 7th day of Chinese New Year today and it's the day you toss Yu Sheng, which is kinda like a raw fish salad, with strips of various vegetables and sauces and a whole lot of other things. Basically everyone gets a pair of chopsticks and toss all the ingredients together and the higher you toss, the better luck you'd have.

The 7th day of Chinese New Year is also the day of man, i.e. everyone's birthday. I believe this is why I got 5 pieces of tidbits today. *beams*

And one more thing - the modern Yu Sheng originated from Singapore in the 1960s; betcha didn't know this one.

My mamas are always looking for wally. They bought this silly picture book, I'm sure it's for kids 2 years and below. And when they were done, they dumped the book on amanda and sibs, and went to buy another one. I must warn their mama and papa that the books will make their kids stupid.

My mamas look stupider already.

I had diarrhoea 3 times today. In the morning, my stomach hurt and I wasn't happy. Ah bee went to work feeling worried. It was only till the 1st load that I felt much better and my tail perked up. Fomfomfom texted ah bee that my tail was finally wagging and it was celebratory.

But I had no trouble getting tidbits all day coz my mamas felt like they had to make up for the dental scalin' yesterday. Everyone was happy.

Fomfomfom and ah bee left me in a cage at the vet's today and went off. I was scared and clinging to ah bee and promising I would be a good girl but nothing worked. I was alone and locked up, oh, the trauma. What happened after that was a blur but I woke up in the cage, and they claimed me 3 hours later. Apparently, I had a dental scalin'.

I don't know what the vet woman did to me, maybe they took a baseball bat to my head and knocked me unconscious, but I was groggy and unhappy the whole day. To show my displeasure, I refused to drink water all day until just before bed, when my mamas were almost on their knees begging me to drink something, anything.

Oh, to bed. I need to recuperate. I'll take my revenge on my mamas tomorrow.

 

Still no orange skull cap!

We met Jonathan, Amanda, Eliza, Nicky and their parents this afternoon. They were going visiting and everyone was decked out in new clothes. We know because well the clothes looked new and Nicky pointed at his shirt and said very happily, "NEW!". We said byebye to them and about 2 minutes later, their mummy came back and gave Fomfomfom and Ah bee a red packet each. Fomfomfom and Ah bee were so embarrassed because their mummy isn't that much older than the two of them but they had no reason to refuse the red packets. So they took the red packets and thanked Auntie Gwen for 'em.

I believe Fomfomfom is going to frame her red packet.

 

CNY day 2

Today we gathered for lunch and auntie sakura's shih tzu myet myet made me look bad. She's such a little girlie, and ah ma swooned over her long hair and girlie ways. I heard plans being made for my next hairstyle ala myet myet. Luckily ah bee and fomfomfom said no way, ping's got her own style. Who wants to look like a little girlie anyway?

We saw amanda and gang during my evening walk. They were perched on their balcony, all talking to me at the same time. They weren't allowed to come down coz daddy had friends visiting. They all had nice new clothes, and we praised them for looking so fine.

Oh, we're all so tired. This chinese new year thing ain't easy at all. Time to sleep.

 

Where is my Mama!

It's the first day of Chinese New Year today and I wore my pretty scarf Cha bought from Taiwan. It's important to dress up during Chinese New Year.

First we went down to Uncle US' house to greet them happy new year and then we went to offer incense to Ah ma's mama. Then we trooped over to my Ah yi mama's house. I was real excited coz I'd get to see my Sugar mummy, my sister and my brother. I haven't seen them since Christmas when they came over. That reunion was short because my siblings fought and my sister started bleeding so they all had to go home.

Alas, they were not at home when I went over today; they had been banished to Jolene yiyi's office coz my siblings started fighting first thing in the morning. Sigh, they never learn. I will just have to see my mummy another time.

End of day one festivities for me. We continue tomorrow.

 

Happy New Year

My 7th Chinese New Year! We had our reunion dinner and I had pork, liver and fish. Yums. And kangeroo jerky for dessert. Yums yums!

I heard them talking about an orange skin skull cap just now. *groans* It's this crazy thing they do to me every Chinese New Year (if they remember). I believe there was one year or two when I got away without having to wear that thing.

So anyway, when they remember, Ah bee would peel a mandarin orange and trim the skin into a skull cap for me. Then they would take pictures of me wearing the orange skin skull cap. Every year they promise they would make pomelo skin skull caps for themselves so I won't be the only one looking silly but that hasn't happened yet.

I should call SPCA.

Gong Xi Gong Xi everybody!

 

My care bear stare

Let me write down what I was intending to, before my spot of amnesia hit me yesterday. Cha went to the pet supplies store and bought me many many goodies. It's auspicious to have your cupboard brimming with good things before the chinese new year. It portends the coming year.

But I wasn't happy to hear about the scheming baby beagle. She's only 2 months old, just a baby. She sat behind the glass and blinked at cha, twice. Cha almost brought her home. Luckily, the baby thing wasn't very skilled. Cha didn't make a move after the 2 blinks, and the beagle decided it was a poor investment and turned her back on cha.

I can teach her a thing or two. Open those baby blues and stare. All day if necessary. Are you listening, baby beagle? I hope you land a good home, anyhow.

 

I forgot!

Oh oh oh! I forgot to write my diary last night! As I wondered how I could have forgotten something that I've been doing daily faithfully for years, ah bee comforted me. It happens, said she. Don't be too hard on yourself.

This is serious. It could be age creeping up on me. I must reflect.
