When we talked about Chinese New Year Eve, family reunion dinner is always mentioned. It was great to have everyone sitting down and have dinner together. It only happens once a year but this is the point that made the day special for families.
I just learned that we put off a fire crackers as a sign; Sign: We are having a family reunion dinner.
The night was crazy! Sibu-ians put off their fireworks like crazy! It started at 11.00pm, non-stop to 12.15 am! This proved that we are kiasu. For example, if a neighbour started to put off their fireworks, not wanting to lose (and at the same time, showing off their 'powers'), the rest of the neighbours started to put off theirs!
