With just less than a week before CNY, the OUG morning market was a hive of activity. Even BN Seputeh tried to 'show their concern' by organizing a community event on Jalan Hujan Rahmat 2. They commandeered half of the road to put up a stage and many tables. The displaced market vendors must have been so pleased. Hampers were given out to elderly residents and those with disabilities. And of course there was free food for the public. Senator Datuk Mustapa Kamal also 'turun' padang to distribute free reading glasses (bet they can detect fake news). He tried to help mum to get a suitable pair but none they had were suitable. Countless cameras were clicking with his every 'charitable' move.
Come evening, I joined SK at a party with her ex-colleagues. A pot luck with lots of food. There was grilled chicken wings, char siew, vinegar pork knuckles, savoury rice, and a birthday cake. And booze too. Someone brought their kids along, so we even had an 'Art Attack!' session making paper lanterns and canine origami for CNY. At the end of the night, we were stuffed to the brim, but still with enough leftover to tapau!
