Happy Chinese New Year

(In the living room)
Dad: Why do you keep listening to those Chinese New Year music?
Mum: Because it IS the Chinese New Year!
Dad: Well I don't like it. Change the channel.
Mum: [Click. My Chemical Romance - Black Parade on MTV.]
Dad: Good. English music is much better. Let's eat.

(At the dinner table)
Dad: Real men drink wine.
Ben: But the wine smells horrible.
Dad: You drink beer.
Ben: It's different.
Dad: They are both alcohol. It's the same.
Ben: Fine, I'll take a sip. [takes a sip]
Dad: So how is it?
Ben: YUCK!!

Mum: Put the handphone away!
Jo: Wait wait, last message.
Mum: We're having a family dinner, put that handphone away.
Jo: Fine.
(Handphone rings)
Jo: Mum, I think that's yours.
Mum: (Picks up the phone) Hello? Ah ya ya! Gong Xi Fa Cai! So how's everyone there? Ya I can chat now. Don't worry, I'm not doing anything.
Jo: Hm.

Bernice: Bennie, pass me the bowl.
Ben: No.
Bernice: Pass it to me!
Ben: No.
Bernice: Daddy, you see this Bennie!
Dad: Bernice, get the bowl yourself. Your brother is learning to drink wine.
Bernice: AAAAARGGHH!!

So that was my Chinese New Year Eve dinner; Mum chit-chatting on the phone, Dad being so close to shoving the glass of wine down my throat, Jo continuing her SMSing and Bernice being the only one concentrating on eating. All this while Black Parade is playing in the background.

Not the most perfect of pictures but I ain't complaining :D Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

No reunion , no nothing here. Just some pathetic occasion held by the local chinese community here. Anyway, had a nice night out in town to celebrate CNY though... (reunion dinner will still be the better choice if I got a choice)

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!
