Happy Chinese New YearHello everybody ! Happy Chinese New Years to you all. So , i promised i would post photos right? so here they are :
Those two pictures above are the food my family prepared for our Chinese new years open house(party) . It's mostly just family gathering though . And i understand that some of the food might look weird to some of you but it tastes nice :D there's veggies , theres sweet and sour fish slices , prawns , pork , chinese dumplings , fried chicken , duck with sweet sauce and stuff :D
And there's this food that's a bit weird :
Apparently , you use those chopsticks to scoop the food up and the higher they are, they more luck that will befall on you and your family . And don't ask me what the name of the food is.. i'm still figuring it out myself . sigh.
There's salmon(i think) in it , i think it's the pinky slices on top , theres tangerines , slices carrots , and other slices up stuff that i don't know >.<
So, during the first day of the Chinese new years , my family and i first went to the temple to pray so that we would have a prosperous year ahead of us . And wow , the smoke :O actually made my eyes watery but i think it was worth it? i think . And then , we had our CNY open house(party) , but it was for family members though , like our cousins , relatives and such .
It was fun . I received lots of Red Packets ! weeee~ Red packets are red envelopes where you put money inside and give it to people on their weddings or during Chinese New Years and apparently , only married couples gives em . I think it's a chinese tradition or something ~ anyways , i got a lot of em , some are from my parents , and some are from my relatives . weeee MONEY!!!!! More makeup stuff and skincare products to review.
But I think I'm gonna save most of it though :X
So , after the open house , we tidied up and at night , we went to a family reunion at my father's hometown with my relatives and had dinner there :D
By the way , there's this chinese new year taboo that you can't sweep the floors on the first day of CNY as it is said that you're sweeping out your luck . I'll paste it below for those who wanna know :
Chinese New Year Taboos :

#ThingsYouDontKnowAboutMe : I am a very messy person but a perfectionist at certain things at heart .
Umm , it means that , some of my stuff are messy but when i'm really focused on doing something , like a school project , I must make it into perfection or at least try my very best at it . :)
Hope you enjoyed my post~ and hope to see ya soon! bye!~ x
