Chinese New Year is long gone but it was such a fun time so I’m going to share. 🙂
We decorated our place with a couple of handmade lanterns and three 1 dollar decors from the nearby chinese fair. Celebrating Chinese New Year was also a very good excuse to invite good friends over for drinks, singing, and eating!
Chinese New Year is celebrated here for 15 days. I got the following loot from the office..
We also were fortunate to be invited by our chinese collegue to their cny celebrations. It was so much fun and we learned a lot about their traditions.
We did a noodle toss.. which was basically tossing the noodles with chopsticks while saying your wishes for 2012 out loud.
The noodles were interesting.. there were a lot of symbolism in all the ingredients in the platter.
We tossed and tossed.. and wished and wished…
and drank and drank….
I think we had a little too many drinks… because we rode the wrong bus on our way home and found ourselves infront of this temple…
Luckily there was a bus stop nearby that goes straight home.
That ends our very long CNY celebration here.. It was fun! especially the part where I got a lot of stuff… hehe
