十面埋伏

31 Jan

Well, this is a continuation to the blog entry of yesterday’s. And since I am now looping the song ‘十面埋伏’, my entry shall be titled as the song title too. Hopefully I would be able to blog peacefully without much inteference but I don’t think it is going to be quite possible. A tweet talk has now upgraded to a whatsapp group chat. >.< Anyways, I shall still try my best to be short and sweet as requested by expertism.

So I was talking about the mahjong session with Shawn, Sherry and her 2 friends (A & B). Went home after school that day and quickly ate and bathed so as to rush out again to meet them for our mj session. Okay and so I rushed down to CCK to meet them and they were late.

First up, friend A. Looks: don’t wish to comment. Cannot believe Sherry’s words because all her friends are good looking to her. Of course it’s a good thing to be protective of your friends but Cherry we are your friends too!! Be honest with us. Hahaha. Well, looks are still not the most important thing. So, we went over to Cherry’s house for our mj session. Was warned beforehand by Shawn about the nagginess and niam-ness of Friend A, especially if you were to snatch her flower. And oh my good, I was so so disturbed by her continuous taunts and rants about why I took her flower or why did I not feed her with better tiles. Hey, this is a game of mahjong. It’s your own game so why should I be obliged to let you win my money?? I seriously dislike girls or anybody who has no 牌品. You can be very skilful or very lucky and win all of my money if you can but please do not behave in that way. Once or twice I can take it kiddingly but anything more than that, it shows of your character. As the elders always say, one’s character can be seen thoroughly during a game of mahjong. I believe in that and I see it with my own eyes. Okay enough said of friend A. Not a good first impression.

Next up, friend B. To be honest I have to be. I will be more lenient in my comments for her as she was a very poor thing. Like literally. Took a cab down to Sherry’s house and still had to wait for almost an hour before she could lay her hands on the tiles. She then became my neighbour above during the first round of mj. A more soft spoken person as compared to friend A and I kinda guessed that she is a Cantonese as the game went by due to her little action. I observed that she would take a quick glance at my reaction whenever she played a tile. Well, my dad taught me this too so that’s the reason why I would think that she is a Cantonese and displays a Cantonese style of playing. Of course I have not played with too many outsiders apart from my family but it’s just a gut feeling. Anyways, in my own opinion, I think she is a better person than friend A I have to say, as even though she was being consistently bombarded by Shawn, she did not ‘fight back’ and even if she lost quite a bit, she did not display a black face. This is what I call 牌品.

Well, we played all the way through the night until around 5 plus in the morning I think. Overall, I won a bit but money is never the problem. I mean fun is more important to me of course and I did had fun playing with them. Went home around 6 plus and poor friend B had to cab back home with an empty wallet. Felt real bad at that time. Slept until around 10 and woke up to meet Shawn for a movie.

It was already Friday when we watched the movie ‘All well’s end well 2012’. Was a funnie movie and yes, although it was my 2nd viewing of the show, it was still funnie to me. Had a good laugh but still thought that it would be much better if it were in Cantonese as many locals here would not quite catch some jokes or gimmicks that the cast was trying to protray.

Thereafter, we went to the supermarket with Kian Tiong to get food for our steamboat dinner later on with the CPF gang. Bought the usual stuff and also as usual, we would never be able to gauge properly if we had got enough or we got too much food. After getting our food, we went home and it was still pretty early. And so we decided to play ‘Angry Birds’ playing cards which I bought in HK. It was fun to me. Preventing people from getting rid of the card and also causing them to lose their turn. Yeah, kind of like playing Uno cards but nevertheless it was a fun game. Soon after Audrey and Cheng Feng (expertism) came along and we started preparing the food for dinner. Indeed it looked like we had too much food to finish by the looks of it. Wow like meat, meat and more meat. We looked like beasts. (and I just realised that we did not take any photos!) And soon after we started, Eugene came along as well after his class. Had a very full dinner and surprise, surprise that we actually managed to finish all the food that we bought. Towards the end of dinner, we decided to go for a singing session after that and Shawn managed to book for a 11-1 session. Dinner was done at around 8 plus but singing session was at 11. What to do?? Blackjack!! Guess luck was really on my side for the past week as I won quite a few bucks after a few games. Therefore, we decided to play poker cards that do not involve money. After a long persuasion, expertism joined us for a while before we rushed off for our singing session.

The singing session was only for 2 hours and it was really too short for us although there were only 4 of us (Shawn, Audrey, Cheng Feng and me) left. After sending them home, cny is quite officially over for me. Not a brilliant one but enjoyable enough to be. Maybe it was due to the fact that we are all grown-ups now and do not really celebrate cny anymore. To me, cny is simply just an excuse to buy new clothes and to get myself fat with all the food, although again, I do not feast on them as much as I did when I was way younger. And so this spells the end of my cny part for my entry. Shall move on to other things.
