One, Two and Three - My Days with CNY Dragon Year!

It means that this post is dedicated for my three days of amazing CNY "honeymoon" enjoying in town.

Seven days in a row, including clearing my leaves, public holidays and forced leave on the third day of CNY are finally over, I just love the holiday where we could just stay at home doing nothing, meeting up friends and others. What a life that most of the working people would like to have and IT IS UNREALISTIC!!

I'm gonna roughly point out a few important issues that I was involved/ managed to experience. :) Here goes...

Day 1 - 23rd Jan, 2012

- Fireworks at 12.00am -

When the clock strike 12.00am, the neighbourhood and other housing areas blew the fireworks and played the firecrackers even exceeded the usual amount which we normally had. It was like fireworks war out there. (O_o)

Besides, my neighbour was playing it for the past four days with unlimited supplies I guess. Somehow, I still heard the fireworks sound even after 1.00am.

- Fireworks -

Amazing view doesn't it? I took those shots infront of my house.

Fireworks beautified the sky, but polluted the air and the environment, recall "the sound pollution"?. :S (FYI, I'M NOT AGAINST FIREWORKS) It was all over Kota Kinabalu and the same applied to other places too. And you know what? The scariest matter is, there was one man aged 26 got his head blew off because of fireworks that he thought was not functioning, and it happended during midnight when his family were happily welcoming the new year. My gosh. :(

- Temple at 9.00am -

We went to the temple at 9.00am and less crowd compared with the later crowd.

- Lion Dance at Temple -

- Lion Dance at Temple -

Not my hand. It's meatballonline's hand!

Day 2

- Long Table -

Mom bought two new tables to extend the existing one from this year CNY and other occasions. Therefore, guests could enjoy my dad/ mom's Hainanese Teh C at the long table comfortably from now on. :)

- Cooperative mom added on her baskets collection to spice up my photo shoots at home -

- First Guests : My cousins family members in the morning -

They even had wine at 10.00am. -__-

Day 3

- Friends Gathering (the second in a day) -

The third day of CNY, it's a norms that gathering will be held during the third day of CNY. Anyway, luckily I was having forced leave from my boss (positive way of thinking :D) It's been a day with friends which most of us might only seeing each other once in a year. Good practice or maybe no?  I have been to two Upperstar branches today, first at Suria Sabah and the second (above) at Lintas.

The end for this CNY of mine, that completes my kind of CNY this year, nothing much to shout out about, it was just a normal one I'm having. :) How about yours? :)

Next, back to work on the fourth day and..... food and travel entries back to normal! :)
