Happy Year of the Dragon! Kung Hei Fat Choi!

by - Monday, January 23, 2012

I kinda miss Chinese New Year.  We don’t have it here in Sweden unlike in the Philippines where the event is celebrated every year with a bang!  For the first time in the Philippine history, Chinese New Year has been declared as a special non-working holiday [23 January] for all Chinese-Filipinos and ordinary Filipinos to enjoy.  Wow!

The last time I was able to witness the event was when I flew to Manila for a four-week vacation on February 2010.  I actually arrived a couple of weeks late for the celebration but the Chinese New Year spirit was still fresh so it was still awesome.  I could still find Chinese lanterns hanging inside the malls, candies wrapped in Chinese paper and other cool festival decorations such as this one:

A fascinating money tree inside SM North EDSA’s The Block which is surrounded with tigers [2010 - year of the Tiger].

Year of the Dragon is my Bebe’s year --- hopefully, everything will turn out better for him [and me *wink*] the entire year and the years to come.

Oh well… I guess I’ll be home to celebrate Year of the Snake with my mom.  After all, 2013 is going to be her year!

Kung Hei Fat Choi [May Prosperity Be With You] everyone!
