Malaysians love the festive season. Cause we have the holidays.. how did you spend yours? 🤗 did some edits on the clips I captured using my new Samsung A32. I need at least 1000 subscribers before I could even try monetizing my content. Consoling myself that Ali himself made 77 videos before he could actually make money from his content. He didn’t even compromise on quality. I don’t want to jump onto the tactic of just churning out videos for the sake of just making them cause it doesn’t really reflect on what I’d like to show on my channel.
This year both of my Chinese neighbours were very generous in gifting me oranges. Like the whole box! I was grateful and touched by their gestures. One of them was a former colleague at my workplace. He got me cake and coffee for my birthday last year. I had no idea he knew the date. I didn’t even put my birth date on Facebook.
My solar lanterns are not shining brightly this year. Very disappointed. Must be the panels.
I will be taking leave next week for a day to kind of keep up with my OUM assignments. Rasa macam makin banyak benda nak kena baca.
Its a long weekend for the general public and I am grateful to have at least a full 2 days off as compared to them. Despite not celebrating the Chinese New Year (CNY) .. I am still in a festive mood and trying to enjoy my quality time with my parents and of course Mr Husband and Hazeeq.
I try to make it a habit of visiting my parents at least once a month to see how they’re doing. Occasionally they would drive over to my place for a change of air.
My neighbour who is celebrating the CNY has been very quiet for the past 2 days. Perhaps they are celebrating elsewhere as we have yet to see the festive side of them for the past 3 years we’ve been living in this neighbourhood. I was looking forward to some lion dance and firecrackers or a glimpse of the lovely sweets and cakes but the gate is closed shut. HUhu.
After 2 full days at my parents house, it’s time to go home. The traffic from their place to ours was incredibly smooth. It was ugly yesterday as stated on the news. We heard that the journey from Malacca to Kelantan took up to 12 hours by car. Say what?? Thank god my parents house is just a football game away. Although it could get up to 5 hours, at most. Yikes.
Prior to reaching home, we stopped at Old Town White Coffee at KIP Mart for lunch. One of those places where people don’t seem to frequent at that hour of the day. We love lengang places. We abhor overcrowded areas unless we have to.
