Long + Weekend

This week, the town has been filled with the preparation and celebration of Chinese New Year. I could see lion dance performers in random places, performing in public. There is a big rooster lantern placed in the middle of Chinatown main street. A stage stood a few blocks away, where they played Chinese drama. This time around, last year, we went to a friend's house for a barbecue party and ordered McDonalds at 8 pm before the store closed. This year, it means a long weekend, a reason to procrastinate on the laundry, an extra time in bed and additional swirls of whipped cream in our coffee cups.

    1. Thank you Sally. I enjoyed your post about CNY too.
      Haha, I think I am just not as outgoing as you. CNY means us avoiding chinatown because of the crowd, and stock up for the long weekend, so if possible we don't have to get out of the house. But I do enjoy visiting friends houses on CNY and just having a good time over home-cooked meals.
