Guess where I went early in the morning?
Even though it's the first day of CNY, it's still a Sunday and church service was on. This is my home church in Penang- Penang Christian Centre(PCC) or sometimes known as "pom chak chak"(think waltz). Normally the church has a Sat service at 7.30pm and Sunday service at 10am. Because of CNY, the Sat service was cancelled while the Sunday service started 1 hour early at 9am. Thanks to Lye Ean who smsed me the day before, I knew of the time change. However, there were a few people who came in halfway while the sermon was on.
I sat next to Willie and Danny(the Chen bros).
I didn't linger after the service. The guys/gals decided to watch Fearless at night so confirmed my attendance before heading home. Dunno if family decided to suddenly go out early to
By the way, this is how I looked on the first day.
There were more people at our place after that. My uncle from Brisbane brought 2 of his 6 children back this time.
Mom wore a nice blue mandarin collar blouse- come to think of it, I don't recall her ever wearing red for CNY. Maybe when she was younger, perhaps.
After much delay, the hunting finally started around 1pm. Only managed to visit 4 houses this time. Gone are the days where we visit our relatives for the full 3 days. Too many have passed on...
Some of the relatives we paid respect to
Evening didn't do much at home but slept to prepare for the midnight Fearless.
Quite a lot of people, Serene had bought the tickets in the afternoon. Overall, it was a good movie but the ending was a bit anti-climax.
And that's how the first day went...
