Gong Xi Fa Cai!


Xin Nian Kuai Le, Da Jia!


As you guys know, I have chinese heritage therefore I cannot miss the most important day for Chinese people [in my opinion], which is Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year, is the day where all the chinese visit the elders and relatives, to celebrate New Year together. If you’re interested in learning more about Lunar New Year and Chinese culture, there are Chinese history classes available at onlineclasses.net.
On the night before, usually all the family members gather to eat dinner together and have a good talk. I usually spent it with my father's family side, as in Chinese culture, women have to follow their husband's family after the marriage. So Yeah..


I had to be there at 4 so I just put super minimal make up, not even without lashes =_= but still managed to try wave hair as Sochii told me how to do that the night before. Kinda failed though, I still need more to learn! Mostly Chinese would go for cutting their hair but I don't want to, so I just dye my black roots instead. I want to grow it as long as my butt 8D :heart:


Anyway I intended to wear shorts but I accidentally fell down when I went out for Karaoke with my friends and it's still not recovered yet. Then 2 days after, I stupidly got my right thumb stuck between door and it's bleeding wtf. Then the day after, my left thumb got cut by razor and bleeding as well #pokerface


Bad things to start a new year ~


And this is my post using my Iphone! 8D All the photos are taken by my Iphone coz I get really tired bringing my big DSLR everywhere, everyone says I look so strong holding it with one hand, but I feel like training my muscles in a bad way urghh

I wore leopard top + jeans that I purchased on my latest haul. Sorry no outfit photos as I always forget to ><;


So I arrived there at 4.30 p.m but I did nothing after prayed for my grandpa's and greatgreatgrandparents and such :| Then me and my brother just waited outside the house because it's so hot inside because of all the pray stuffs wtf. And this time, my dog had accident!!! T___T


My father's family owns like GAZILLIONS dogs of pomeranians, therefore I also own one. But all the dogs there love my dogs because he's so pretty so whenever he comes, he is always being targeted as rape victim #pokerface


Of course my dog denied la! He's a man! So this time my dog fought with one of them and he ended up injured his ear! He's bleeding so hard until I almost cried!! The floors are full of his blood and I insisted so hard to bring him to doctor ASAP! But my aunties said it's not that bad, and gave my mom betadine instead. Me and my father tried to press the spot to stop the blood. After like 10 minutes + put betadine, it's stopped. I thought it injured the inside but luckily it's on the outside only.


My dog is so strong, he neither cries nor bark when he gets injured T_____T I dont want to bring him to there anymore! T____T


Now he's better T____T

It's super boring so I just sat outside the house, the dinner starts at 8.30 p.m wtf. Sochii said I looked like hipster. During the mean time, I called my friends to talk :\ You can see how bored I was! Hahaha


I ate a lot of porks until I thought I could vomit all of them. Unfortunately no picture of it. My father's family consists of about 30-40 people so not everyone can sit on the table, so I just grabbed some and sat silently on the sofa's corner #foreveralone

Today is the day and I am supposed to go at 9 a.m but I woke up late! 8 A.M!!! I almost screamed because I took the longest time to prepare! My dad can just get ready within 5 minutes but hair styling took so long! So I just did simple loose waves like yesterday, and did my make up on car >___O; Luckily that today I woke up with double eyelids [it changes constantly] so it's easier to put make up on


So I greeted all the elders, and the main point for all the youngsters who haven't got married yet, is the angpao - or hongpao - or red pocket. It's the tradition where all the people who have married give a red pocket to those who haven't as a good luck charm. Inside there's money, and the amount depends. Probably as I grow older, I don't really look forward for it. But since I need some extra cash, it's not bad. So Collect ALL the Angpao's! *insert meme here*

I sent this photo to a friend and he said that I looked so happy haha


Not that happy, but because I need this for Japan trip to meet him and other friends of mine! XDD Though the amount s not that much #okay


I visit a lot of houses of my family's and relatives until I feel I cannot walk anymore. It's so hot and my make up melts at noon T__T I don't want to live in Indonesia anymore, why the weather's so bad T____T if Indonesia had snow, I'd love it so f*ckin much! :heart: hahaha.. no la kidding. I still love tempe and Indomie


But afterall, thought it's tiring or troublesome, this is still a part of my culture which I should be proud of. So I will show off all the angpaos to make you jealous of me

U MAD BRO? #trollface


Hahahahaha...  KIDDING LA! I'm so tired now and everyone seems too ! Sorry if I can't reply your messages one by one if you sent it it me. It's really a tiring day. I ate a lot, I gain a lot. But all the foods are delicious and whenever I visit someone's house I end up eating their food shamelessly LOLOL


Just wish that I would not get fat this year



Happy ChineseNew Year! :) *hugs*
