Because I took some leave in December, and left a few more weeks in acute stroke team, I dare not ask for more leave.
Therefore, when the CNY mood arrived, I was so emotionally down.
Felt left out once more.
I want to be at home, eating reunion dinner with my fambam.
Although we dun do much, it is still a nice sense of happiness, being surrounded by loved ones.
So this year, I didn't get to go back.
Reunion dinner, spent at home, eating pasta myself after a long day at work.
Managed to squeeze in a gym class at least. Felt better post work out.
Then Saturday came, the BIG 1st day of celebration.
Put on my red shirt.
Off I went to Lily's House for our annual reunion... just the 3 of us.
Steamboat it was.
Went and watch LaLa Land prior to dinner. It's been a very time since we went for a movie together.
It was a good movie, as expected. But ending was a whee bit unexpected but it was reality.
Lily felt it too.
"There was once, you both had big dreams. You share it with your very loved one. You encouraged each other to pursue that dream. And when opportunities come, you grabbed it, worked hard for it, pursued it, achieved it BUT.... the person whom you shared your dream with is no longer the same.... Life, moves on. You wished you could turn back that clock, you wished the outcome would be a different ending of happy ever after. Reality is a complete different ending unfortunately..... "
Anyway, it was still a nice movie, with sweet musical songs..... and telling you to chase your dreams, NO MATTER WHAT!
Our reunion dinner. Yums
Trio, sisters in Manchester since 2008.
Red is the ANG ANG colour for CNY.
Have a blessed year ahead, all.
Dearest daughters( us 3) didn't get to go back this year, but our hearts are with you all.
Love and blessings.
