I was off for Chinese New Year on Chu Yi and Chu Er only. The leave was sufficient for a good break.
My Chu San was planned out to be fully occupied. I devoted the morning to work. At noon time after work, I went with some colleagues to our GM's residence for a visit. Thereafter, I reserved the afternoon for Allen who planned to go out with his buddies on new year visits. Earlier on, I agreed to drive them around.
It was a wonderful time for Allen and his clique. Their blah seemed to be non-stop. When I acted as their chauffeur, I felt enlivened by this group of youths.
In the evening, I went with Yian to a new year dinner thrown by Mr. Hii Hua Hii, Chairman of Gao Yang Xu Association Sibu, at his residence. Hua Hii has a fine character of hospitality which is most admirable.
The buffet dinner was laden with a sumptuous serving of popular local hot dishes and desserts. On the whole, it was a jovial gathering with satisfying foods.
