Gong Xi Fa Cai

Dear All,

Gong Xi Fa Cai and happy Chinese New Year!

Aelig participated her first Chinese New Year with my family. Everyone was surprised that she was not scared by the enormous sound from the red firecrackers. We wonder whether she is too young to feel the fear or her ears have some problems.

First day of Chinese New Year = wearing red. My mother gave her this cloth.

Receiving ang pao (red envelope stuffed with money).


  1. You'd be surprised to know that Chinese New Year is also big here in the Philippines. And the tradition of giving ang pao is very popular even among Filipinos.
    Happy New Year to you and your family.

  2. Happy new year to you and your family! Hope you'll have a GREAT time back home :) !! Gong Xi Gong Xi!

  3. Happy CNY...may u and ur family be well and happy.
