How close does it get?

One more day to go before Chinese New Year. It's not surprise to see a huge crowd at the train station today on my way home. Some of them are carrying their luggage, waiting eagerly for their train to arrive.

After 12 minutes of waiting, the train has finally come. At the moment the doors open, people are pushing around just to get a step into train. They hope they would get back to home in time, just like me. I was fortunate to able to board the train without any help. Yes, not even walking into the train because there was a large force at my back pushing me into the train(somehow, I think I was lifted into the train). When the doors close, how would the situation inside the train? How close do the passengers get? Below are some of my experiences.

1. I can feel other people body heat.
2. The only way to breath is by looking upwards.
3. I can feel my butt was sitting on other people's butt. (I am 6 feet tall).
4. I can tell who has washed their hair; who hasn't. (eewww!)
5. I always find people brushing their beard on my shoulder when they turn their head (my shoulder is not meant for wiping beard).

So, ladies, skip this one if you don't want to experience anything like I have mentioned above.

Pre Chinese New Year Room Cleaning

Yup, the time has come again. After a year long of "junk collection" eating dust in my room, it's time to move them out for good (so, there are spaces for year 2008 junk). Below are some of the common junk that I found.

1. Magazines, Books, Notepads - Magazine in 2006, College and University books, and empty notepad waiting to grow fungus. Send them to the recycle bin.
2. Lotions, Hand creams - Expired in 2002, they got to go.
3. Electronics - Test them and see whether they still work. I found some old camera and I saw some ad in the newspaper that these camera can be used for rebate (for purchasing a new DSLR camera). Better keep them.
4. Souvenirs and free gifts - If it's does not bring back any memories, they should be given away or end up in the dustbin.
5. Promotion brochures and junk mails - They shouldn't be inside my room in the first place. I don't know how they end up here.
6. Credit card receipts - Identify them before throwing it away. Usually, those have passed a year can be safely disposed; else I have to call the bank a year ago. To be safe, keep them for 7 years.

Finally, Gong Xi Fa Chai and Happy Chinese New Year. May you have a clean, healthy and prosperous year ahead.

For my wife: Thank you for helping me cleaning up the room, although 20% of the junk are mine. :P
