day 1662 – chinese new year celly

the year of the dog starts off with more food celebrations; chinese new year celebration at the office, then with family. stayed up late to make long distance calls to my grandparents and relatives in hong kong. it’s good that i hit the gym between the two chinese meals. i guess i’ll run and workout a little harder to work the food overload. and at the end of the day, i have a few red pockets to take home with me

fish shaped mango pudding dessert for good luck, that’s the what we call the opening year meal on the day after chinese new year. there’s been a string of many important meals lately, all so rich and delicious but i feel too bloated and hope this will all be over soon and go back to normalities

day 184 – happy chinese new year!!

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

annual celebration of chinese new year enjoying a fantastic home cooked meal with my family. so spoiled at the dinner table filled with endless supply of good food. here’s to another year filled with memories, milestones and goals. i feel so blessed to have my family and friends stick with me through all the ups and downs. hoping each and every year i will be able to enjoy this time of the year with my family just like all the previous years
