KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!!!!! HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!!So, for those of you who may not know, i'm half Chinese and today is Chinese New Year!
I've always loved Chinese New Year, since I was a child we would always celebrate Chinese New Year's Eve having a huge dinner with the family, and getting a gazillion Lai See/Red Pockets(pretty red envelopes that symbolize good luck and ward off evil spirits, also they have money inside).
New Years Day was usually spent again having dinner with family, and occasionally enjoying some time together in Pacific Mall.
I can't quite remember if I ever dressed up as a child but, my cousins always do and they're just so adorable!
That's why this year I decided to sorta dress up for it!
Funny story, I actually totally forgot it was Chinese New Year's Eve and arrived home after work to my dad frantically telling me to get ready otherwise we'd be late for celebrations.
I quickly threw on my kimono(which I initially put up for sale last year after having it hanging in my closet for a good while, I ended up taking it down and trying it on again and couldn't part with it) and rushed out the door, it was so great seeing my extended family again. I feel like I barely get to spend time with them nowadays, definitely going to make it a priority to spend more time with them this year.
