春节见闻

春节这几天,我如往年一样与家人吃团年饭、收利是、逛花街……做一切过年可以做的、吃一切过年可以吃的。但是,惟一一样东西改变了,就是我已步入了“有薪阶级”。“大个女啦,会赚钱孝敬父母啦,甘依家爸爸妈妈米可以减轻负担咯!” 差不多见到个个亲戚朋友都是这样称赞!今年表哥同三叔的私家车都升了级–一个开辆Ford,一个开辆Lexus,车内还有一个GPS系统!哇,我甘大个人先第一次坐有GPS系统的私家车。虽然车不是我的,但坐进去就好有成就感。难怪人人都说,车是身份的象征,三叔好厉害啊!昨晚同家人在番禹吃了团年饭,晚上的时候到处可见烟花空中绽放,到处可听到一声声烟花的巨响。烟花就在头上绽放那种喜悦与兴奋,可能只有当自己身处那个情景才能体会到。虽然只是昙花一现,但那是多么的美丽、那么的难忘……回家路上,经过洛溪大桥,遇见今年我亲眼目睹的八车连环相撞,夹在中间的车好惨啊,前后都受损!
 
今天中午同姨妈一家人吃团年饭,好久没见过表姐的儿子啦,他长高了又长结实了,我一见到他就想捏他红润的脸蛋。过年啦!又有得收利是,可能是因为我已工作了吧,发觉今年亲戚给我的利是馅儿都少了。嘿嘿!不过没所谓啦,派利是都是讲意头姐。大个啦,会想啦!不幸,大表姐夫的摩托车不见了!吃完饭后,大家兴高采烈地离去,可是……哎!真是倒霉了!明天就要去天津旅行了,怎么说呢?我既期待又不太期待,选择天津是因为自己想碰碰运气去看雪,后来又想在狗年尝尝“狗不理”包子!不期待嘛,对天津了解不深,不知道自己会不会喜爱上这个目的地。Well,一切看我回来写的游记吧!
 
I deleted the previous entry because I think at this happy festival, I should write something cheerful and joyful. What I have written in Chinese is basically what I have experienced during these several days in Spring Festival. Although everything comes so traditional and ordinary, I think I cherish every moment I have with my familes. I always have a feeling that someday I will lose these mements… I don’t know. Perhaps I am pessimistic from time to time. The highlights of my reunion dinners with my relatives on both Mom and Dad’s sides are:
 
It was great to watch the spectacular firework above your head!!! It was a pity that I didn’t bring my camera. Although the fireworks didn’t last long, the joy and ecstasy on people’s faces were just indescribable. The rumble of fireworks in the sky submerged in the exclamation of the crowds on the ground.
 
I had a chance to sit in my cousin’s car as well as my younger uncle’s car. I guess they had a successful year last year. Both of them have upgraded their autos–one drives a FORD, the other drives a Lexus with GPS screen next to the gear shift. My uncle told me that it took him a long time to figure out this gadget as there were so many bottons but very useful though. Wow, it’s my first time to sit in such a fancy auto with GPS–of course I feel strong sense of accomplishment, even though sitting at the back side. No wonder it is said that auto is the identity of one’s social status. On my way home I saw a chain of eight cars collision–wow, really spectacular. It should be the first on-road accident I witnessed in Year of Dog.
 
Misfortunately, my cousin-in-law’s motorbike was stolen today after the reunion lunch with us. I was so sad to know that as this should be the third motorbike he has lost. Sigh! As Monk said to Sherona, "suck it up"!
 
I am going to travel to Tianjin tomorrow. I will update my space after my return. As I wrote in Chinese, do I anticipate this trip? Yes and no. Well, let’s see what will happen…
 
Happy Chinese New Year!!! Have a good life in Year of Dog–my year! ^0^
