Happy Lunar New Year - Part 3

It has come to Chor 2 of the Chinese New Year. As my family's usual practice, we went to Tai O of Hong Kong, which is called the Venice of Hong Kong. It is a very famous attraction spot in Hong Kong which I strongly recommend to people who are visiting Hong Kong. It is very beautiful!

The reason why I had to go to Tai O on Chor 2 was that all my family memebers are rooted in Tai O and every year on Chor 2, we would gather together. Greeting one another and have family lunch together.

 
There would be Lion Dance on the street in Tai O every year!
 

 


My relatives have given me lots of laisee! Lucky me!

Happy Lunar New Year - Part 2

It has come to Chor 1 (the first day of the Year of the Snake). My mum and dad and I had done all the decoration for the New Year.

We stuck Fai Chun onto the Wall of our home. They are some hand written ones with lovely blessings for Good Health, Good Fortune and the Sufficiency of Food.

 

We put chocolates, candies and seeds (瓜子) into the red box (全盒). This box is for serving relatives who are visiting. We would serve it with Chinese tea.

 
 
My mum and dad gave me their red pockets (also Lai See) wishing me all the best for the coming year! The red pockets look very lovely! I usually keep it un-opened till the end of the year.
 
 
 
And, we had family gathering with my brothers and their family members.
 



I always think Chinese New Year is the most lovely moment throughout the Year. It is full of laughters and blessings. People will greet others by saying Kung Hei Fa Choi and wishing them good luck. Family members will gather together for dinners. I love Chinese New Year much!

Happy Lunar New Year - Part 1

Happy Lunar New Year!

It has come to a very important Holiday in Hong Kong for all Chinese to celebrate, the Lunar New Year (also the Chinese New Year). It is one of the  holiday in Hong Kong.

Yesterday was the last day of the Year of Dragon. I went to the flower market in Mong Kok for the floral arrangement for the New Year. People would buy differnt flowers. Gladiolus is one of the favourite choice for the Chinese New Year. It symbolics the sincerity and strength of character



Chrysanthemum is another choice for New Year. Chrysanthemum symbolises perfection, optimism and joy which are important in the Chinese family.


Another one is 五代同堂 (very sorry I do not know the English name for it). It symbolises all family members of different generation gather together.


For me, I have bought some Peach Blossom flowers for the hope of better relationships and lucks.  I especially love the Lunar New Year! Full of joy, peace and warmth.
