Namecards done!

My Firefly Car Care Namecards, Front and Back! Nice not? I designed it myself...after a lot of reminding from Shasha...hehe I get sidetracked very easily and forget stuff alot, so I am glad Shasha is there to remind and prod me to do stuff! This is the third day of new year, and I went visiting on the first day, which is a Sunday...

New year doesn't feel like New Year this year, for some strange reason. Maybe I am growing older, and my younger married sister started giving Angpows... (which I accepted really quickly, for fear she might change her mind about giving me not one, but two!) Maybe it is due to the fact that I have so few shows for the new year this year...Oh well, let's not think of the depressing bits...

It was fun meeting my relatives again, and for the first time, I had a full conversation with my grandfather in Hokkien! People should come up with Hokkien clsses or something.... I am resigned to the fact that I will never have a philosophical conversation with my grandfather, and that my first hokkien conversation is all about a bird that I am keeping certainly shows alot about my relationship with my grandpa. I wish I could hear his stories sometimes, since he has lived more than 90 years and can still remember everything that happened. If I could, I would want to ask him about his life, why did he take two wives and do nothing when the younger wife was cast out into the world, left to her own devices to fend for herself while his older wife kept the children to raise as her own. I would ask him if he married for love. I would ask how he built a business from almost nothing... where did he come from? So many Whys and Hows.....

I guess these are things that I can never ask him, since my Hokkien is limited to eat, drink and goodbye. But I ask, knowing how to talk about my birds would be a first step!

Someone really should start a class!
