CNY is when we spend quality time with family, no matter where you are from. So, I would usually stay home with my family, catch up, makan-makan, play cards (if you know what I mean ;-) ), watch TV together, etc.
Definitely! I went to Singapore with my family during 12/2 - 14/2. When I flew back from Singapore to Malaysia, the time that I spent waiting for immigration clearing and luggage is longer than the flight from Malaysia to Singapore! How ridiculous!
