What can be weird about my Chinese New Year?
1. All people eat mandarin oranges, even Malay and Indians buy them. But I haven’t eat one this year. I eat some last year, but I didn’t eat any in 2004 as well. I love to eat, I just don’t eat. Hmmmm, what is the logic?
2. All people buy new clothes. Chinese believe they have to buy NEW clothes for NEW year so they can have good luck. If they don’t wear NEW clothes in NEW year, they will have very bad luck for the whole year! Bullshit. I didn’t buy and wear any new clothes for CNY in 2003 and 2004. And I do very well in 2003 and 2004. I buy new clothes in 2002, 2005 and 2006 (no money in 2002, girl friend force me to buy in 2005 and 2006), and those are my fuck up years, having screw up in almost everything (study, work, love) in 2002 and do nothing productive in 2005 and 2006.
3. People like the food in CNY, chickens, ducks, pigs, yucks, I hate bloody meat. Lion and tiger eat meat because they don’t have a choice, they can’t think. But human can think. And if human really meant to eat meat like animals, then do the way animals do. EAT RAW MEAT! No lion cook their dinner before they eat. And no tomato sauce please!
4. Ang Pow sucks. I receive around 30-50 ang pows every year (my grandfather have 1 daughter and 10 sons, the daughter is the eldest making 10 sons a straight set, who say probability works?) Quantity doesn’t mean anything. The total income from my ang pows total to less than RM100 for many years. These guys don’t understand inflation, 20 years ago, the ang pow size is RM2. Today they still give RM2, don’t they know Pop Piah was selling for 40 cents 20 years ago and now it is selling for RM1.30 for the SAME POP PIAH? My parents also give me RM2 ang pow for many years. Note: Not RM2 from Papa and RM2 from Mama, it is RM2 from Papa and Mama together sharing the same ang pow!!! So I tunjuk perasaan (boycott) 2 years ago by refusing their ang pow. It worked and they agree to increase it to RM10 per person. Wahahaha.
Happy belated Chinese New Year to all who read my blog!
