'tis the season to be greedy

Characteristics of a typical Chinese:

1. Loves eating
2. Loves money
3. Loves gambling
4. Loves red and other auspicious stuff
5. Loves noise and the crowd

So NOW do you know why we celebrate Chinese New Year? So we can actually bask in our own indulgences, e.g.

1. Everyone gets to eat excessively until they get too full, get arteriosclerosis or hypertension.
2. Kids get the money and stay happy for the rest of the day.
3. Adults go gambling and LOSE money (98% of the time).
4. The whole house becomes plastered with red decoratives and piggy figures.
5. Aunties and Uncles get lost in the world of mahjong and deafening sounds. What a pleasure.

Am I sounding cynical today? Must be the fact that I didn't get enough money, didn't eat enough, banned from gambling and MOSTly because I didn't get enough money.

After all, I AM a typical chinese.

Where are my Roses and Chocolates???!!

Okay i know I sound like a desperate + aggresive spinster... although it's true that I'm a spinster (If i were married at this age it would be child labour), i'm not exactly desperate but a teeny bit disappointed due to the fact that I didn't receive any valentine stuff (except a --sorry, 2 --miserable Ferrero Rochers from Tiffany which I am utterly thankful for)... I mean it's sort of a girl's dream to get a surprise for Valentine's, right? (not the getting dumped kind of surprise, obviously)

So what should you do if you're single and it's Valentine's Day? Indulge in chocolates and ice-cream, of course! That was exactly what I did and frankly, I just felt fat and guilty (and I'm probably recommending this to you so that I'll not be the only one growing wider)

But anywayz who cares if you're single or attached? Bask in the spirit of love as it is not confined only to couples but also between friends and family! Wish each other Happy Valentine's Day and treat yourself with something good (and reasonably healthy)!

If these recommendations do not work for singles, just share this miserable day with your other miserable single friends and be miserable together :P

What? Was that mean? I'm single too, so I'm probably trying to miserablize your day. Sorry for that!

Double Sickness

In conjuction with the flu season, I have gone sick together with my computer (absolutely true) so that explains for my blogging absence for such a long time (yes, i know you miss me)

So now I have to reprogram everything in the new computer!(broke down due to worn out motherboard) i'll be back soon...
