Today is Chinese New Year’s Eve, just like X’mas in the western countries, it is the time for families to get together, have big big feasts. I’m having CNY all by myself, but I just called most of my families to wish them happy new year.

It is actually sad calling them as grandparents are getting older and older each year, and their health is getting worse and worse. I’m not sure if that’s the main reason why I don’t call them often. Although my brother is closer, I don’t call him often either.

Uncle asked me to install Skype so they can call me at any time, I installed it and talked to them for a while by typing, because I don’t have a mic. I don’t really want to use it, but it is actually not bad. Maybe I’ll just cancel my landline and use it.
