It's the year of the Dragon!!!
Cheap decor for the home from a local Chinese market since I never did do the lanterns. ><
I worked today for the full 8hr shift and my mom told me to ask if I could leave early. I was about to...but then my office manager asked me "apple or yogurt?" during out last hour of work. I accepted a blueberry yogurt...how could I leave?
But I did tell my sister to take pics...and I have taught her well.
Steamed fish! And yes, that is a really old wok. lol.
Clams, two types of mushrooms, and white/brown rice (which I'm not too fond of..)
Though it wasn't your typical traditional Chinese New Year's meal, it was just as good. We're quite an Americanized family, but our little cultural traditions are ever so special to me. Usually, we'd order in some take-out, but my mom decided to cook. The Year of the Dragon is already starting on a great note.
And ending it off with this red envelope ("Lei See") from my mom. ♡
Hope that the new lunar year brings you much happiness, prosperity, and changes...for the BETTER!
