CNY 15: Chap Goh Meh

Iris and I decided to be a bit more adventurous today and so I drove for the first time to Klang, without even knowing the way to it. It’s a pretty long, straight drive along Federal Highway. It’s Chap Goh Meh, you see? So I can’t just be staying at home. I must do something like how I would always have something to do if I were to spend a day like this in Sandakan.

We dressed in our pink and red Cheongsam top! I like it when I wear that.

We went to visit Iris’s best friend. Her house is just by the roadside and next to a temple. We prayed and I love the joss stick scent and debris flying here and there. The burning flame from within the whatever you call it where you burn papers. One auntie was so busy praying, I blocked her way. She said, “Girl, can you please siam?”

It was nice to see her parents and siblings. They are a really warm and loving family. They made us feel so much at home. We had Bah Kut Teh for lunch at Bah Kut Teh Ah Meng. Nice I must say!

Gambled a little too but I’m really lousy at gambling because there is hardly a chance that I would win. It happens all the time. That is why I don’t gamble that much or not at all during Chinese New Year.

At night, it was dinner with Iris and my friends. We had lou sang in Sushi King and it was not that bad. Quite delicious. I saw people setting up the pillars for 2 acrobatic lion dance performance but then it was dinner time and none of them are as obsessed as me to watch it so, I just sat obediently for dinner. If only I knew they were going to have lion dance performance in One Utama, I would have adjusted my time so that I wouldn’t have missed it.

It’s the end of Chinese New Year. The beginning of a doggy life. *woof*
