It’s Chinese New Year Eve today! In Malaysia, we would have a huge family reunion dinner tonight to start the celebration but in the States, it would just be the three of us. :) Normally, we would invite close friends to celebrate with us but Alex has been sick with the flu…so no invitations went out this year.
To get in the mood, I put up some festive decorations this morning. I also set out a few treats (nothing homemade this year) and the first thing Alex inquired about when he saw all these was of course, the “ang pow.” For those of you who are not familiar with the term, “ang pow” simply refers to the money-filled red packet that one receives on CNY. Well, at least the kiddo remembers something about CNY, I guess. :) Gong Xi Fa Cai!
