WOW! In a week time, CNY will be here. I don’t know… I love the feeling of welcoming CNY in Kuching and at the same time freaking out every time it’s nearing just like how people freaking out about welcoming the new year in the Gregorian calender.
I would definitely start to have the mood to bake even though we don’t get many visitors to our house every year. Most of the time I would stay home, be lazy and all but still I love CNY. Always have this warm fuzzy feeling about it even though we don’t celebrate like what most people are doing. My parents would spend time sleeping away or watching TV instead of getting themselves all stress out visiting houses after houses hahaha… Most of the food we bought we ate it ourselves, the junk food could last for at least a month or so. We don’t go visit relatives or attend family gathering too, no such tradition in our family.
When CNY is near, I have this feel like something new is on the way. On the 1st day of CNY, the air would feel like new also. Every year, I never fail to tag along with my parents to CNY bazaars in town.
Kenyalang, this is the place Kuchingnites will go for CNY preparations. It’s been decades already. This is the place you will feel that CNY is around the corner but only this week it’s getting packed, previous weeks were quite quiet.
Boulevard’s CNY decorations. The goldfishes were recycled from previous CNY. This is now one of the places Kuchingnites go to stock up their CNY goodies. We did ours here too.
The Spring decoration. They have Japanese carp this year “swimming in” the fountain. Compared to Boulevard, there’s less people here maybe because Kenyalang is just around the corner.
How’s your CNY preparations?
