Wishing everyone a happy Chinese New Year! 祝大家新年快乐~! Lol, I stayed up to watch fireworks~ The capital does have a lot of Chinese people rich enough to afford things that explode in a matter of seconds...
As a Chinese, this is a pretty big festival for me e w e : moneymoneymoneybiscuitsmoneymoneymoneycandiesmoneymoneymoneynewclothesmoneymoneymoney. <-Can't blame me for having the mind of a Chinese woman XD
Also, this is the perfect time to laugh at some customs that haven't evolved since time immemorial :3 Not laughing at my culture, but some of the customs are ridiculously old-fashioned to the point that they don't match with the 21st century.
This is also the time I use the most Chinese and Cantonese (I can't speak Hokkein for the sake of the world), gain the most weight, have the most guests, watch the most fireworks (secondly to New Year's day), waste the most money, and earn the most money in the entire year.
Also, a shout out to all you overseas Chinese, don't forget your culture
I'm actually really curious about how overseas Chinese celebrate Chinese New Year, do you all hang out in Chinatown or something? XD Malaysia is a country where Chinese culture is rather significant (in the cities, blame that on the British), so I'm really curious about the others in other countries, especially western countries. Care to enlighten me?
With all that crap pushed aside, enjoy the year of the goat! For those who don't celebrate, have a joyful spring!
