Chinese New Year 2012 - 02

When we mention of Chinese New Year, all of these terms came in mind:

  • Going back to hometown – You actually don’t know how wonderful your home is until you start studying or working far away from home.
  • Family Gathering – The only time of the year where everyone put down their work / studies and have a great gathering.
  • Food – enough said
  • Ang Pow (Red packets / Red envelopes) – Monetary gift symbolizes good luck and ward of evil spirits, given by older folks to younger generations
  • Fire Crackers – explosives lol
