Current Mood: restless
am feeling restless. must have been the rather strong coffee i took this afternoon. should reduce caffeine intake….cny celebrations was special this year. firstly, it’s my first after being away for 5 years. almost could not remember all the customs (e.g. no washing of hair on first day of cny, no sweeping the floor etc). secondly, quite a few relatives from canada and australia are back this time round to celebrate cny together. grandma’s little home was packed and had a really festive feel to it.
however, most of us didn’t do very much. just sat around, read the papers, watch tv or make idle chat. i spent most of the time reading. almost finished ‘the female eunuch’. quite anti-social to have my nose in the book all the time, when there were relatives and friends all around to catch up and chat with.
well, have to get to bed early. church tomorrow at 9.30am.
