2 days ago, Abah brought us to his friend's house, Uncle Ah-Ho, somewhere at Jinjang. It thrilled everyone since the last meet up was 3 years ago.
The scent of oranges pierced everyone's nose and tell you what, the dogs are very tame owing us to leave the fear before we enter the gate. They were caged anddd their mouth, such as locked! Tapi anjing sebelah rumah yang over menjerit tak tentu pasal. Hesh.
We talked of many things that evening, as the implication of growing daughters troubling the parents. Uncle Ah-Ho cakap,
'Anak pelempuan aaa, satu hali nanti kasi tinggal ibu bapa ikut suami. Kalau suami jahat, ibu bapa pun talak boleh kasi jumpa. Chinese New Year pun talak balik. Wa sama auntie makan besar cuma dua olang. Manyak sedih.'
He then added,
'Along sama Angah sama Adik bila keleja balik lumah selalu, duit bukan yang Mama Abah lu mau. Kahwin nanti bawak balik cucu, kasi rapat sama atuk nenek.'

Happy Chinese New Year!
