Chinese New Year Eve is a very important event to all Chinese. It’s the time when family members gather together for the reunion dinner if possible. Many travel home from far to join the rest for this auspicious time. But for me, sadly, it’s been quite a number of years since I’ve not been back for the Chinese New Year. We miss home a lot during this time and so are our families back home in Malaysia.
I remember one year my mother-in-law called me at midnight (Malaysian time), or 4 p.m. here, to ask me to listen to the non-stop fire crackers blasting into the air from everyone around in the neighbourhood. Isn’t she sweet? But isn’t she naughty too, to make me miss home even more!!…
