Chinese New Year at the House of Red

Chinese New Year last week at home was as festive as usual. Lion dance group came and performed. Guests came for the show and communal lunch and dinner. My red pockets were at minimal amount – tough personal finance generally. But things are going to be good this year so hopefully will make up for it next year.

    Beautiful.

    I wonder why I’m not Chinese? Being non Chinese is an unjust & undeserved deprivation in times of these festivities.

    I shall look for Chinese friends to be able to participate next year.
