Lunar New Year Week 2014
January 27, 2014 § Leave a comment
This week is the Lunar New Year Week, which is celebrated by most Asians. Compared to the Gregorian New Year, the Lunar New Year is a lot more fun. My house is literally stacked with all sorts of New Year gifts and goodies – sticky rice cakes, rice dumplings, candied peanuts, dry fruits, beef jerky, large-size chrysanthemum, small peach trees with blossoms, ochna integerrima (New Year festive trees), bonsai, Japanese apples, giant pears, giant grapefruits, watermelons, oranges, mangoes, sweet tamarind, fire crackers, red envelopes, and more…..I will be sharing photos of all these goodies starting on Friday – the first day of the New Year!
