Day 5 CNY

I was told to pass the red packets to the garbage collectors when they come. We missed them when they came the last time because we weren't home. When the came in the evening on the fifth day of CNY, I dashed out to passed the red packets to them. The garbage collectors were elated when they saw me with the red packets, and said "thank you Aunty" to me. Fml. Seriously W.T.F. Which part of me resembles an Aunty? If a kid calls me Aunty, I'll still be ok. But for uncles to call me Aunty, thAt is totally unacceptable. What the heck. Ish.

Day 1 CNY

Gong Hei Fatt Choy. Went to buy Indian food for dinner. Oh the irony. Having Indian food on CNY. That's partly thanks to the crazy traffic and the fact that most shops aren't open today. Even McDonald's isn't delivering. Reason was there's no delivery service....Erm, then why do you have a delivery telephone number if you don't provide the service? Anyway, since there isn't much of a choice, we have to settle for whatever's available. Then, while on my way back after buying dinner, I saw a weird thing. A man who was walking with a cigarette in his mouth, suddenly stopped to kiss a tree. O K. Weird.  People just get weirder each day.
