day 184 – happy chinese new year!!

image

receiving red pocket is pretty standard. making phone calls back to hong kong and regurgitating dozens chinese proverbs is pretty standard. but it never gets old just seeing their faces or hearing their voices on chinese new year. chinese new year is not about receiving the money inside red pockets, it’s about cherishing each and every special moment spent with the ones you love and can’t live without. embracing the year of the horse, i look forward to everything you have in store for me

the day couldn’t have ended any sooner as it has been terribly long and rough one. everything seems to collapse collectively including many abuse, bashing, banging and bruising on elbow, forearm, shin. good to know tomorrow is another day but also knowing the problems won’t go away overnight.¬†clearly my attempts of pushing them to the side or hiding them under the rug does no good
