Currently listening to Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, nice song indeed, thanks Mr Alexio for sending me this nice song!

How's everyone on the forth day of Chinese New Year? How many red packets you guys got from your relative and other married adults? Did you guys went for open house or something? How's your hometown? How's your CNY experience?

Well, to me, it's all the same, same as the usual normal boring days.

Until today, I've collected about 30 red packets from my relatives and neighbour. I don't get to visit any of my friends yet due to the same old rules, I don't know why on earth these rules are valid on festive season! Well, what can I do?

However, I am here to do a short update mainly about the reunion dinner I had yesterday.

Well, every year during the third day of Chinese New Year, we will definitely have this reunion dinner with my aunt and uncle from my father side. But the thing is, my dad has 4 siblings and only 3 out of the 5 will be sitting together every year. Due to some family problem, 1 of them couldn't make it for the dinner every year while the other one had migrated to Australia.

But in recent years, somehow, we are contacting each and other again! And yesterday, after so long, I finally managed to see some changes. At least now 4 out of 5 sit together for dinner, the one in Australia still can't make it on time but they will be coming back next week. So I am looking forward for another dinner reunion with them.

I have another dream. I want to gather all 5 of them to sit in one table. I mean, including their partner, there are only 9 adults (one of them is still single) and only a total of 8 children all together (eldest 32; youngest 17), so we can book a room from one restaurant and have 2 tables in it, everyone will definitely managed to talk to each other, it must be a great reunion. And I will not forget to take a family portrait, it will be very memorable!

Seriously, I wish I am the person who gathers everyone up!

Second dream of my life! Ooo... I'm having dreams now. Hopefully my dreams will come true!
