During the 2nd day of Chinese New Year or Chu Er 初二, I went to my mom’s uncle’s house at Pengkalan Hulu, somewhere inside the state Perak. Near to Betong and Baling. 1+ hour drive from Penang. I go there almost every year during the Chinese New Year for reunion with other family members on my mommy’s side. Though my uncle house is real bored, no Astro, Internet and computer.
Ma mom’s uncle. My grand uncle?
Mommy’s side cousins from everywhere.We had our dinner quite early that day. At 5pm. Should I call it as a teatime meal or dinner? Haha.
The place is near to Klian Intan which is a super duper small Chinese kampong/village area. It’s also my grandma’s hometown. Since we were boring, I asked dad to drive us around to the village and check it out.
Village with like a thousand people population.
There’s only 1 coffee shop, where all the locals gather there for chit-chat session, Mahjong game and drink coffee. I took out my iPod touch and search for wifi, unsurprisingly, no access point was found. Haha.
When to the temple to pray at Klian Intan and later we do the fireworks there. Uncle bought 600bucks for fireworks. No more crackers already, this time upgrade to fireworks.
Luckily I got my cheapo tripod with me. But the shots I took weren’t so nice. At least able to capture some memories. I’m gonna compile a photobook at the end of the year. So I got to take more and more picture!
Still got many days of Chinese New Year celebration. Gonna enjoy it till the max but school starts tomorrow, I hate it. Boo.
