Are You Ready?

Anoddah year has wooshed by and I dunno about you but does it seem like New Year's is waaaaaay busier than Christmas?

Wassup Wit Dat!

Christmas seems to be duck soup compared to New Year's cause everybody gets practically da same thing for New Year's:

Da good luck "weeds" you attach to your door frame.
Da orange on top of da plastic mochi thingy wit da pic of watevahs.
Da mochi pounding.
Da mochi eating.
Da mochi soup.
Da firecrackahs....... well, lack thereof now. :mad:
Da rush to pick up ice.
Da wat feels like $100 /lb sashimi but still taste da same as da $7 /lb sashimi from a day ago. :roll:
Da house cleaning.
Da numerous pah-tay's before, during and aftah.

Am I missing anything else? Wat are your New Year's Eve/Day traditions? Feel free to add to da list.

Oh yeah, not to mention dat more people take off for New Year's Eve than Christmas. I guess wen it comes to pah-tay's, EVERYONE can do New Year's yeah?

And not to be out done for da last totally selfish parking pic of da year taken just two days ago.... which is not immune to religious sects......












You gotta give da drivah credit though......... s/he parked PERFECTLY in da middle. :roll:




Have a grrrrrrrrrreeeeeat New Year and pah-tay safe! See you on da flip side.... hopefully right side up.... but then again, dat wouldn't be in WWD! style now would it? :lol:

    As the years pass, the older we get. Kids will grow up and next thing you know, they leave for college, get married, or move away. Expect changes and enjoy life to the fullest. Happy New Year to all.

    We usually have family over and partake of food and drink...

    And I still burn firecrackers....It's a tradition and cultural thing in our family but the City Council just made it harder to carry out :-(

    Not being brought up in da local traditions, I enjoy looking @ da weeds & plastic mochi, etc - and wen Chinese NY comes around you will find me looking for jin dui, coconut gau, and one t-shirt with the "Animal of the Year" on it. :-)

    Over the years, this has become my 'new' New Year's Eve 'tradition':

    1) Close all windows @ ~noon.
    2) Go Longs fo' ear plugs fo' try sleep latah
    3) Clean a/c filters & turn 'em on.
    4) Medicate da cat wen da bombs start going off :roll:
    5) Go to da movie or go da friends' hale for pupus & songs (no drink)
    6) Try look see da cat still hea, poor kitty. :(
    7) Wish everybody Happy New Year!!
    8) Try sleep - if can, can. If no can, no can.

    This year, da bombs stopped ~1 AM so I got sleep this time. :-)


  18. Kage:
