Happy Chinese New Year
Happy Chinese New Year to all of you especially to my Chinese friends. May the Year of the Dog be a prosperous one for all of us!
Last year I was in Miri during the Chinese New Year, and so was able to visit a few friends. I am going to miss all the sweet barbecued pork meat. :-( I don't think I have seen any of those at the Asian supermarket here in Sacramento. I love all our Malaysian cookies and also love to try the different cakes that are usually staple during such festive seasons in Malaysia.
I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from a friend in KL yesterday wishing me Happy Chinese New Year. I don't know if she thinks I am Chinese? Heheh, it was very thoughtful of her though.
I would love to be in San Francisco during the Chinese New Year. I hear that in Chinatown, there is always a big celebration going on .. lion dance, fire-crackers .. all the cultural stuff. Yeah, maybe another time.
Otherwise for the rest of us here, the new year will be just another day. Cong Xi Fa Cai!
