X'Mas? No~ Just a little(Big) Family reunion...
Every single family from my mother’s side came,
Well, maybe a few didn’t,
But majority of them did come!
Due to that,
The house became full of life.
(More so than it usually is….ha ha),
The first thing we did when they came were to watch a movie,
The youngsters and the men to be exact…
The women were in the kitchen,
Ruthlessly cleaning, cutting, seasoning and cooking lunch.
Good cooks they are.
Going back to the activity youngsters and men were doing,
I’ve got to tell you something.
There is one thing about the movies that was to be watched,
That is a MUST when it comes to be watched in my house, and that is;
The first movie would always, ALWAYS be a Chinese movie.
Courtesy of my dad, who is a Chinese, of course.
While we were watching the movie,
A stray thought suddenly stumbled by,
‘If should ever we, as a family of more than 70 people,
Were to go to a movie together…
I bet we’ll be kicked out from the cinema before the movie ends,
If were to be compared to the noises that were made just by watching a single DVD at home. (lol)
So, lunch and movie ended.
Subsequently, we went to Sungai Bil to go for a dip.
Some of the elderly stayed behind whilst others tag along.
As expected by the weather that pass over the days,
It rained just like the other days,
Though, not as heavy as before.
Thus, the plan to go for a dip in the river still moved on.
Alas, we arrived at our destination…
Unsurprisingly, the temperature of the water was low.
Owing it to the rain before (which was still pouring but just drizzle then),
The temperature was lowering than it already was.
So, you get the idea.
The water was C.O.L.D.!!!
I wonder how a person who lives in Atlantic bathes?
Ignoring the real meaning of ‘taking a dip’,
We exactly did what each word meant take-a-dip.
With the temperature of the water being ice cold and the rocks that were around,
We couldn’t find any place or strength to swim at all.
So, we just played random games,
–splashing water around
-who could breath in water longer
-who could move against the current without being swayed by the current instead
-who could throw stones into a hole of a tree trunk (which was at the middle of the river)
Childish? We know.
But it was fun, so, who cares?
Then, we went back home and made some BBQ (for dinner).
*I didn’t really participate in the BBQ, the PS2 kinda taken over all of my awareness which leads to me not knowing what had occurred during the BBQ~ Boohoo~ (TAT)*
And that’s there is, and there isn’t any more.
Thanks for reading.^^
