Day 14

Annual family event of the year

3rd January 2016
I went food shopping for an annual event with my mom and auntie. My mom has 5 sisters and 1 brother. We gather twice a year on mid August and early January. Most of their children got married already and they have their children so now there may be 50 or 60 people in total. It became big family. If all of them came to visit my grandpa's (My mom's dad), it would be chaos so most of them hold back to come so it never happened yet.

Takoyaki for lunch

My grandpa's home is 30 mins away from my home. It's surrounded by trees and bamboos. The nearest neighbour is 500m away so slightly isolated. He used to grow mushrooms behind the house but looked abandon now.

My 95 years old grandpa, hard of hearing but still eat well
Basically ladies prepared for the meal and men only eat and drink
My dad was drunk as always and slept under the cusions
