\It was a long and tiring Chinese New Year for me. Loud mahjong noise from my neighbours kept me up all night and I couldn’t get a good night’s rest.
Every night, the mahjong tables were set up in the common area and the noises just didn’t seem to stop.
No matter how much I tried to ignore it, the mahjong noise would just keep getting louder and more persistent. Even when I put earphones on and tried to block out the noise, I still couldn’t get to sleep.
I was so relieved when Chinese New Year finally ended and the mahjong noise stopped. I could finally sleep peacefully without worrying about being kept up all night.
It’s not that I don’t like mahjong; I actually enjoy playing it. But I just don’t like the noise that comes with it. It’s just too loud and it can get quite annoying.
I understand that mahjong is a part of Chinese culture and I respect that, but I just wish that people could play it in a more quiet and respectful way.
I guess it’s just the way things are in my neighbourhood. People here love to play mahjong and they don’t seem to care about how loud it gets. I’ve tried to talk to my neighbours about it but they just don’t seem to understand why it’s a problem.
I’m just glad that Chinese New Year has come and gone and I can finally get some peace and quiet. Now, I can finally get a good night’s sleep without worrying about being kept up all night by the loud mahjong noise.
I’m sure that my neighbours will start playing mahjong again soon, but at least I know that it won’t be as loud and persistent as it was during Chinese New Year. I’m just glad that Chinese New Year is finally over and I can finally get some peace and quiet.
