Gong Xi Fa Cai

at last, a week rest for the celebration of chinese lunar new year. No work, no sideline and a stress-free week ahead (hopefully).

Part of their custom is giving 'ampao'(aginaldo) on their new year. I always recieve 10$ ampao on a small red envelop from the boss, aside from 'percentage' bonus they give every new year, talking about 'being un-galante', hehehe. This year, no bonus, no ampao and I had reserve that (wishful) amount of money to buy a new SLR camera, tsk tsk tsk, 'it's me' counting the chicks before the eggs hatch.

I haven't seen Chinatown during this festive season. They said there's a lot of bargain sale - food and everything. Ba Kua (grilled meat), a lot of candies and mandarin oranges are the best buys during this season. We'll go for a walk one of this night to share the experience of lunar new year rush.

We're off for a 3-day road trip to Malaysia next week and I've booked for 3 holiday destinations - Sunway Lagoon, Genting and Kuala Lumpur. From what i've seen on travel shows, Malaysia is quite a beautiful country, rich with natural resources and tourist spots. Maybe we can compare it with Pinas during 60's when everything was 'virgin' - forests, beaches, mountains, ladies (bweheheh). Seriously, I envy them, that they take good care of their resources and maintain it's natural state, hope we can do that also.

Have a safe and relax trip - to us, hik!

Why will you "pity" them for taking care of their resources and maintain their natural resources? Do you really mean it or do you mean you "envy" them?

Tanggero said...

oops, thanks anonymous, that's 'envy' :)
