then i just help my mother to prepare something for the ancestor prayer.
after we pray our ancestor, i help to burn the "hell money paper" as an offering for the "God".
around 1pm we have a simple lunch since later we will go for my father side reunion dinner for the Chinese New Year Eve tonight.
after that, i also help my brother to hang those CNY decoration at outside of our house.
somehow i do face a little argument with my brother when fixing the "Tanglung" (a type of Chinese lantern) because the design was quite hard to setup.
while thinking back my yesterday post about "No Money", i just feel that actually it is all depend on my decision in life and how i want to think about a problem.
for example, if i decided not to study anymore for not going to UK this year, i will might able to afford to buy a below RM150,000 property or a car as a goal for this year.
during the evening, i just get myself prepared first while waiting and surf some news online.
around 6pm we make a move from home and went to my father's brother house at Kota Kemuning.
mother have cooked 3 type of dishes such as fried chicken, fried fish and vegetable as it is a potluck type reunion dinner as shown below.
frankly speaking, i just keep listening to others people story throughout my moment at there as myself was quite an introvert person.
actually i did feel "envy" but keep told myself don't think in such way but to think in a positive way.
for example, when i heard my cousin shared his experience of travel in different country, at first i was "jelly
but if i think in a positive way, i would be happy because at least i know what's culture on that country.
another example was when i heard some cousin talk about others cousin/people for being so successful, i should be proud of them if i think in a positive way.
furthermore, my father's brother was one of the successful pilot in Malaysia and i should be proud of him where he was featured in Air Asia Travel 3sixty magazine every month.
while reading the article post that he wrote for the magazine for next month, i feel a little touched when he wrote about the upcoming post that title "from a poor carpenter son to become a pilot" for next month.
one thing i realized that in order to be professional or specialist in certain field, you need to spend years of continuing doing the same job to get recognition.
in fact, i am proud of him that he had inspired a lot of young people to become a pilot by replying any question regarding aviation in Malaysia in his Just About Flying blog.
perhaps it was true that if you having a strong passion about what you're doing, you will be success in the end but not like having "passion to whine about your life" just like what i did using blogging to express feeling.
on the other hand, i do feel sorry to him that i said i want to become a pilot when i was small but end up "empty talk" when i grown up.
well, i don't think i am able to start all over again because the aviation course in Malaysia required at least few hundred thousand to study and my health condition was not very good.
however, i might be able to achieve it when i am rich one day as the course to study private flight is cheaper and i also know the price of a smaller-sized aeroplane that is achievable to buy.
somehow i just told myself that i shouldn't "humiliate" myself where i am a weak person because all the negative energy will always keep brings a person's feelings down.
during the night, i enjoyed the reunion dinner and just keep eat a lot of big prawns since it was my favourite.
actually i do feel a bit "down" when they ask about "where i work now or whether have girlfriend or not" because my life seems to be so uncertain but i just overcome it with a smile.
after that, i gambled with my cousin for 21 blackjack and ends with losing RM6 in total.
around 11.20pm we make a move from there and i finally arrived back home at 12am.
then the "fireworks bombing" sounds start to keep on going as it last until 1am.
in fact, i not sure how long it will ends since i heard my neighbour burning firecracker at 1.40am.
well, i just can say some Chinese people really rich because they can burn so many fireworks as it is not cheap too.
overall i just feel today post is just like doing yearly financial plan as i will read back on my last year father side reunion dinner 2012 post to see how i feel for that same day.
at last, i would like to wish you guys to have a happy reunion dinner for Chinese New Year Eve.
