Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Jan 22, 2012 in ,

Happy Chinese New Year everybody! Hope everyone has had safe travels so far, a safe trip back, and a great time celebrating with your entire family. Gong Xi Fa Cai! May the year of the dragon bring you good health, prosperity, joy, and love.

Today is also International Hug Day, so pair your wishes with hugs! ;)

Chinese New Year is really close to Christmas and New Year's this year, isn't it? I remember going out just a few days after Christmas and hearing all of the dong dong chiang music already… I like it haha.
I wanted to post my favorite song here, but I can't find it even though I know the melody… The chorus goes "gong xi gong xi gong xi ni, ah gong xi gong xi gong xi ni."

My parents and I went to Petaling Street last night, and found this adorable shop near it… It had all kinds of cute little knick-knacks (Chinese New Year decorations too, of course), including flowery stuffed animals. Guess who I saw there, along with his two friends? Totoro!

I have a picture with Totoro now. :D I was ridiculously excited when I saw him.
