Year of the Tiger Roars In!

February 17, 2010

It’s Chinese New Year again! Been down to Chinatown a couple of times, decorated the pussy willows, bought all the little cookies in their little plastic boxes. Saw a lion dance, enjoyed days off from school, discovered downtown is quite quiet during the first and second day of the lunar new year – but explodes with business during the third! Gong Xi Fa Cai.
