24.01.2009 | 水靜河飛

農曆年回鄉過節係好多人嘅指定動作, 眼見同事朋友們個個都喺度高談闊論話返鄉下過年, 每次我都只係有聽嘅份.. 可能有個鄉下返吓, 會容易感受到農曆年嘅來臨, 不過我一年365日都係喺我呢個所謂嘅「鄉下」生活, 真係冇甚麼分別..

啲人走晒返鄉下, 所以週圍都顯得水靜河飛, 每年也如是.. 加上父母兩者都係排行最大嘅長輩, 我哋都係等叔舅姨姑上門拜訪, 所以就連去親戚屋企拜年嘅機會都少之又少.. 每年就係死蛇爛鱔咁hae喺屋企冇乜嘢做, 所以有時都會覺得新年好悶架..

仲有兩日咋, 我仲未feel到新年囉其實~~
it is a tradition for people to go back to their respective hometown to celebrate CNY, i see friends and colleagues happily talking about going back hometown for CNY celebration, but everytime i can only listen.. maybe because of the "hometown" thingy that people can feel CNY coming, but for me, since i am living in this so-called "hometown" each and everyday, i really don't find a wee difference..

people left for their hometowns, hence everywhere seem to be very quiet and empty, this is what happened during CNY every year.. both my parents are the eldest amongst their siblings, all aunts and uncles are supposed to come over to pay visit, thus it is just so rare that we have chances for relative house hopping.. and so being the same for every year, i really have not much to do at home during CNY other than eat/sleep/tv.. that is why i do sometimes think that CNY is quite a boring festive..

just two more days to CNY, but i still could not feel it~~

  1. Well, you're not the only one whose CNY is not a big deal.

    At least you're spared the jams and hassle.

    hehe, not only siblings but all my father's siblings' families.. they will all come to our house for the reunion dinner every year.. so imagine more than 30 people having dinner?? that is explosive!! haha.. well, just like what you mentioned, it's repetitive every year, so there's just nothing special to shout about :p those post headings?? err, to be precise, i actually write in chinese first then translate into english later.. so they actually tell what is in the content.. :)

    csws:
    haha, you have lots of hwan gook and jit mook over there maa.. i think maybe it's because you tend to appreciate things you hardly can get?? haha.. well, maybe tonight when relatives bombard our house for reunion dinner i would start to feel CNY lor.. na na na, you better set ready the menu and dishes you gonna cook for us later ah har.. :p

    vincent:

  21. haaa ... that dish i only tasted 3 times, once in HKG, once in Shun Duk, once in London, everytime I also leam leam lei de ... the Shun Duk one was the best, only last night I realised now it's no longer a 'Gu Fa' (ancient) dish anymore, it's very popular on HKG CNY banquet menu, that's how I got to eat it last night in London lor, but it's really 'hao gungfu' to make it .. i will try to master it la .. ha ha ,, what yuo want? then i choose closely my lansauest in each category la ..
