Gong Hay Fat Choy! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year!
Happy Chinese New Year and Welcome 2011 – The Year of the Rabbit
It’s the year of the rabbit! And you know what that means?! Actually, I’m not so sure myself, but I do know what this time of the year means to me. Money money money moooonnnnneeeey… moooooonnneeeey!! No, I’m not Donald Trump, or 8 anymore, but for me it’s about food. Food, family, friends and more food… with or without all those people. (Yes, I can eat alone, but it’s much better with company) My favourite F’s! A triple threat not to be reckoned with, and as I’ve mentioned before, fashion also goes in there. Hmm come to think of it, that pretty much sounds like my life in general… huh…
Anyways if you’ve been keeping up with my blog (congratulations if you have because I do write a lot! And awesome if you do!), but I launched a special Chinese New Year series last week. Today’s post is going to be a relaunch of that series because not to brag… but I found that series pretty epic, and I had so much fun writing them. I can’t waste them on just one day posts! Please don’t think of it as “recycled material”, but actually endless hours and nights of putting it together and me just wanting to wrap it all up, and tie it with a ribbon (or html link), all in one post!
If you’re wondering why all my posts are from Richmond, BC, than stop wondering because the answer is obvious 😉 Oh and also I’ll be on CBC Radio “On the Coast” with Stephen Quinn (690 AM) periodically today (3-6pm) talking about food at Aberdeen Centre. So either tune in or come say hi if you’re planning to come anyways! Today is the last day of the Chinese New Year fair at Aberdeen Centre as well… so there could be potential discounts from vendors too. No promises, I’m just guessing.
