Hey guys! It's been a while since I last updated my blog. Today, I'm going to share with you guys how I have been spending my Chinese New Year!
Well, to be honest, it's not like my CNY is particularly interesting, but I just feel like jotting it down. Many families spend their time in their respective hometowns this year, whereas my family simply remains in KL. One thing I love about spending CNY in KL is that the traffic is so freaking smooth on the first 3 days of CNY!! Cruising on the road with smooth traffic is truly a luxury, and I'm sure the people of KL can relate. Unless we reside near to each other, you really have no idea how horrendous the traffic is within my area, so I'm beyond happy to not run into a parking-lot-seeming highway!
I've also spent my CNY watching Cheese in the Trap, a Korean drama recommended by Joanne. It's been a long time since I got addicted to watching dramas. I don't usually watch Korean dramas, not even the hits like You who came from the stars and yadda yadda. Drowning in boredom, I began watching Cheese in the Trap and I couldn't stop watching ever since. On the first day of my "journey", 10 episodes were already uploaded to the website. I spent 3 consecutive days finishing the 10 episodes: because it was so addictive oh my god (not to mention the super handsome cast, which is another prominent reason why this drama had me hooked). I'm totally sold. Not only is the drama a typical-korean-love-story, it also talks about growing up and how different people deal with different issues. Omg guys, just go and watch it already!!! I really can't wait for the next episode! (fyi, there are a total of 16 episodes)
I wanna talk about my grandma (my mum's mum). My grandma has been staying with us since I was born and she took care of me (a lot) when I was young. My mum told me that my grandma was the only one who would sacrifice her sleep at 4am just to watch my favourite show with me when I was four. She had sacrificed a lot for us. Unfortunately, she suffered a stroke 4 or 5 years ago and today, she has yet to recover. Since then, she had difficulties in movements, which mainly due to the challenge in maintaining balance in posture. She couldn't walk independently, and had to rely on a wheelchair. But I seldom hear her complaining, except when she is really in pain. She remains really strong despite what she has been/is going through. I guess I can never be as strong as her if I were to be in her shoes. Being unable to walk, my grandma stayed home most of the time, which can get really depressing...Sometimes, mum and I would ask her if she wants to go to the mall with us, but she always rejected us in fear that she might trouble us. :(
But this CNY, we insisted in taking her out, and she seemed to enjoy it very much! I love watching a sweet smile spread across her face as she looks around her in awe. When I asked if she's having a good time, she couldn't help but nodded while grinning. I really don't mind taking her out any day of the year if she enjoys it. To me, my gradma's joy is priceless :')
While you are busy partying and hanging out with your friends, don't forget to spend some quality time with your family, especially your parents and grandparents. They have spent their whole life bringing us up, and now it's your turn to reciprocate. They deserve the world from you.
Alright, that's all about this post. Hope y'all enjoyed reading it, I will see you guys soon! x
