Have a great Deepavali this year, went to a coursemate's house and had a great meal.
Went there with Chee Yan and Fathelraman (he is sudanese btw), Fathelraman was very interested in local culture. He took a lot photos.
After sometime we arrived and had our meal which were like mutton (yes, I love mutton !!!!), thosai, edli, curry chicken, a group of indian friends from UTP arrived as well.
We chat along, talk together. It was fun.
Now to the main purpose of this post, (I always keep the best for the last) we always see that other race having open house on Hari Raya or Deepavali, they don't ask for ur present/money when u come (some still accept it anyway) but they just prepare good food and let all people have fun together.
How about Chinese? (yes shame on u chinese....I'm one of them too)
How often u having open house? CNY? Do u invite ur malay/indian friends to your house? Have you?
When chinese having a wedding dinner, people will label them as "money sucker". Wallet gonna have a big hole.
