Even Indian New Year , Malay New Year or Chinese New Year ..to us , is like " YAHOOO.. holidays". and we even mixed up every new year, who cares wat year .
For me , the top 5 Chinese New Year list i wish for will be :
1) Ang Pow ( red packets contain wit $$$$ )
2) Fireworks ( the government banned , yet i still heard lots of poppin sound )
3) Lou Sang ( chinese believe it will bring us good luck in coming New Year )
4) gathring wit old friends n family members ( my god ... 4th place )
5) Lion Dance
6) the list keep on goin....
talking about Lion dance , during my childhood back at nilai ,my grandpa place , he used to hire Lion dance, and i don know why , i jus love to see them dancing ,and the drums part . And when i back to teh city , hardly i can see any Lion dance, and my dad even bought me a small Lion head for me, and i will dance all day long wit drums beat inside my head.
I don't know when the last time i got to see Lion dance where organised by our families members. how--ever , on tuesday as usual i went to Lifestyles office coz they having New Year dinner, and surprised me that they hired a Lion Dance. As i mentioned earlier these days , not only chinese will get involved in Lion dance, even the members who play the drums, or incharged the Lion head n tail , there were consist of malay ,chinese and indians. like i say Happy "Muhibah" New Year.
