First of all, Happy Chinese New Year! May all of you have a prosperous Snake year. 🙂
Anyway, this year is the first time we celebrate Chinese New Year without my grandma. Even though, we weren’t supposed to celebrate the first Chinese New Year after family member’s death, all of us did went back to our hometown and have a great reunion dinner. It was different than every other year because usually we will make noise and chit chat our grandma. We weren’t allowed to pay a visit to friend’s house. Nevertheless, we had a great time and it felt good to be home with family and catch up with some old friends. We enjoyed eating non-stop and drinking Shandy at home.
This year we did a few new things. Floating the lanterns up to the sky and also Pop-Pop Battle (fire crackers that pop when thrown on the ground). Chinese New Year was rather quiet, but we had fun.
