I’m lucky to have these people that I call family here in Vancouver. Although we’ve been rather busy with our own lives and haven’t been seeing each other a lot lately, I never once felt estranged whenever we hang out again like that. Yes, that includes all the pleasant and unpleasant feeling when being with them, how they can be nice but annoying at the same time. LOL But, that’s how families are like right?
I am also having another hotpot session with the rest of my CPU friends tomorrow, and the Malaysian and Singaporean clubs are both having some CNY celebrations next week too. I am so looking forward to all of these CNY programs to get a little bit of the home-y feeling.
To my friends and family who’re enjoying their Lunar New Year celebration back home, eat more CNY snacks for me and good luck with the angpows and gambling sessions alright? And to my friends who are away from home and missing all of the festive joy just like me, you’re not alone. Let’s just take this as a lesson to really appreciate all those that we’ve been taking for granted. Happy New Year all!
