Happy Chinese New Year~! 🙂
We’re stepping into the Year of the Monkey today in Chinese tradition. Spring has arrived in the lunar calendar and we welcome it with a lot of traditions. We spent most of the weekend tidying the house and making sure that we’re all set for a fresh start in the New Year! This is the first year I’m spending Chinese New Year living at my new house away from my mom. We had to put together a bit of decorations to hopefully bring some good luck.
Here’s a bit of the decorations around our house and some of the Chinese New Year celebrations and we’ll end with a 2016 New Year video. Its in Cantonese and its a ton of good luck wishes but yeah, its fun to watch even if you don’t know what its saying. And well, Hoi-Pang Lo is one that you’ll recognize if you watch Hong Kong movies. 😉
I know its more flowers than anything but its really lively and I love having them there. We have a few of those hanging decorations. I just didn’t want to bore you with how they are everywhere as well as those lucky slogans. We have 3 of those around the house. As for the orchids, they opened just in time for the New Year. The timing couldn’t be any better! 🙂
Heading over to my mom’s for dinner is always awesome! I think my mom makes the best food ever so what more can I say? Plus, we had the Superbowl playing in the background which I talked more than I watched but the halftime show was fun. I thought it did the 50 years justice. Bruno Mars was a great special guest and its great that they had him because well, he got judged so harshly back when he did it a few years ago that having him back gives him justice that he is definitely a great performer. Plus, Coldplay is always great! 🙂
And now for the song! 🙂
Have a great day, my lovelies! 🙂
It may be Chinese New Year but expect another post this afternoon!
