At my grandparents' place.
Got off from Singapore a bit late last night to avoid the jam.
It was not too bad though.
Slept on the mattresses grandma laid down on the floor with my cousins.
It was fun. A bit like camping.
Same like whenever I went balik kampung to my dad's place during Hari Raya.
Everyone sleeping on the floor of the packed kampung house.
By the way, as usual my dad doesn't spend the CNY holidays with us here in Kluang. He's somewhere in the East Coast.
It's a family thing.
The house is a buzz of activities now.
My grandparents were obviously busy the past few days decorating the place.
One look at this and I knew that it's grandpa's handiwork,
That's his usual CNY pineapple decoration.
It's for prosperity, good fortune and good luck....well, in grandpa's case, it's good luck at the mahjong table for himself :)
That corner of the house where he put the pineapple is near where we usually set up the mahjong table.
Grandpa is a bit of a gambler and he sure knows how to get as much advantage as he can to win.
Everyone in the family plays mahjong and gamble a bit.
It's a family tradition.
Just for fun, okay.
My mother for instance is quite hopeless at it.
I can't remember even once that she won at the mahjong table during CNY.
But she still plays every time because that's the way of the family.
She considers the few hundred ringgit she lost as angpow to the family.
By the way, I'm even worse at it than my mom :)
Eh, I better get up and help in the kitchen or something.
Maybe later drive grandma to town to buy some stuff.
I will try to write again if free.
Have a good day.
