As always my mum will get all the food stuff like almonds, pistachios, dried peach and sweets. We will order homemade cookies from a nearby market in Kepong. I like trying the new cookies so the traditional ones are hardly found in my home. Since I love chocolate alot most of the cookies that I order are chocolate based. 1 fact about me, I HATE pineapple tarts and bee hive with sesame seed. Mum do not know what I hate so I have to make the orders or else no one will be eating the leftover cookies after all the visitations.
Since this year my 'frenz' decided not to visit my house there is plenty of food and drink left. How awesome! More food for the bear. I have to be honest here, I have a really picky tongue when it comes to eating. Eventhough I am quite a DBKL but I will criticize the food while eating them. I did went on several house visitations and the food & beverages that they serve was utter disappointment. Very traditional cookies and they are all the SAME! No taste at all. So sorry if you are reading this but in my humble opinion, a new year should have some new stuff around. If it's all the same old stuff how new is the new year? Think about it!!!
Let's change the spotlight to my mum now. She loves people visiting our house. She loves giving out angpao(red packets). She thinks that whenever guests take a visit to our house we should serve them with good food and beverages. Make sure they are satisfied. Turn on the air-conditioner just for them as we hardly ever use it unless there are guests. And despite my mum is a single mum taking care of a family of 4, she guarantees an above average amount in the red packets. Every year my 'frenz' will receive a 5. Close friends will receive a 10. Same goes to those that I always mention to my mum about how they have helped me and treat me. YES!!! My mum knows who are my friends and who are my 'frenz'. She knows who treats me well. since this year the 'frenz' ain't visiting, some of my friends received a 20! YES, it's a 20! Believe it. I have never recieved a 20 from anyones mum.
