I decided to take a look at the posts I have put up not too long ago. I did this because of Moon’s comments about new clothes for Chinese New Year. I cant believe a year has already gone by so quickly since I posted about my childhood CNY.
I had an enjoyable two-week celebration with my family and friends. More so because my two-year plus grandson can now hold a conversation with grandma. We went to Universal Studio on Sentosa and the Science Centre and the time spent hanging out with him and my family – priceless! I hope everyone had a good one too! I miss my mum’s Ho Gong and Hee How!
I recently got a watsapp message, actually a group chat initiated by one of my secondary school classmates. We are going to have a meet up session this sunday and I am so excited because some of them, I have not seen after finishing my ‘O’ levels exams with them. More than 40 years ago. A photo of me and my 6 classmates was posted and I was told three of them had passed on. Sad to know but this is life. You come and you go anytime. There is no warning. So just live and enjoy in whatever way makes you happy.
I have friends telling me that there are people who said that I am fierce without even having spoken with me before or getting to know me better. Its not fair but who cares? I cant help it if I look fierce. But I am glad that those who know me think I am the “live” wire of parties or the “clown” who enjoys making people laugh. I am actually very approachable. No matter what, I try to be happy and share that with others.
I have not given up on my thoughts about the 60s Talentime, the party by the beach where we each bring a crab to cook in a pot of boiling water……. cos for the first half of the year, I will be busy planning and organising my big bash of the year…!
Almost 60 years old! Not much time left so just be merry. I have had a fulfilling life and met many good people so if tomorrow never comes, I have no regrets and my eyelids will shut tight.
I know my post a bit “luan ji ba zhao” – messy – but I always remember Terence’s words “a bit of chaos makes life more exciting” ….looking forward to having the double “tee” sound when I tap my EZ Link card when I take the bus or train.
HAPPY CHINESE VALENTINE’S DAY TO EVERYONE HERE!
