The Meaning of Chinese New Year to Me

22 January 2012

As I became older and older, Chinese New Year has became more meaningless to me. In fact, it made me realize that people are realistic, stingy and selfish the most during this festive season.

Why did I say so?

  1. When my dad was in the climax of his career, many people sent him hampers and CNY cards. As year passed, it got lesser and lesser and finally decrease to nil.
  2. Last time, the only way to avoid giving out angpau to your neighbour’s kids is to hide yourself in the house. If you’re caught outside by the kids, consider yourself unlucky. But now, even if I saw my neighbour and wished them Gong Xi Fa Cai, they still pretend nothing happened. I should have wished them Gong Xi Fai Cai instead.
  3. During reunion dinner, everyone talked in Hokkien, not bothering that I couldn’t understand.
  4. As usual, aunt didn’t eat reunion dinner with my grandma (mum’s side) and mum didn’t eat reunion dinner with my grandma (dad’ side) due to unknown family problems. CNY will only make me realize how disunited my family is.

So… these are the reasons why I don’t really look forward to CNY. I like Christmas more because we shower our loved ones with gifts instead of money and the process of picking the right gift for them is more meaningful. It’s the thought that counts.

Anyway, here are some photos I took during CNY Eve.

It was raining so heavily my grandma's place flooded! Luckily I didn't buy new shoe cos my whole shoe was soaked!

So this is what Hokkien usually eat for Chinese New Year reunion dinner (at least for my family).
