QuaRiKa came!

I was born in Malacca but was never brought up there. I grew up in Singapore, Lumut and Sitiawan. My parents shifted back to Malacca after my Dad retired from the Navy. That explains why I have no friends in Malacca. What I do have though is a big happy extended family in Malacca. Every Chinese New Year will be awesome with them around. Come to think of it, each time I go back to Malacca be it CNY or not is always awesome as everybody is always around! 
This year however was a little different, a pleasant difference that is for they came.. they really came! My tweep khakis from Malacca QuaChee and Erika actually made the effort to drop by! You know there are  people out there who actually told you that they’ll visit but never really did? These two DID!
QuaChee and bipang
Me giving out angpow to QC! :D
Erika and I with angpow :D A weird thing happened though, I uploaded a picture of Erika and I via mobile on FB but it disappeared! The above pic is courtesy of QC and his Batman iPhone!
Thanks to QC too for without him I did not even realise the tree in front of my parent’s house has angpows on it! LoL!
Dude and Dudette, I’m sorry if you found me kinda awkward for I’ve never really received guests during CNY. Most of the guests are my parent’s and this is the first time in my entire life receiving MY own guests in Malacca during CNY! 
I was so yea-yea and asked QC what he wanted to drink. He gave out a list of choices to which I have none at home! LoL! I don’t even know what my parents have to be served! *palm on face*
Nevermind, now that I know, next year I’ll be more expert! So do come again next year ok? :D
