Happy Chinese New Year 2011

Since arriving in London, I have always somehow managed to be travelling away for work during the CNY festivities. Ggrr!

This year seems to be the same situation again but thankfully I fly the day after the CNY festival in Chinatown. So I am definitely going to brave the crowds if possible and rustle my way up and down Chinatown looking for a place to eat after.

After not celebrating for so many years, I do feel a twang of homesickness! I wished I was home to celebrate with my family. I missed the annual reunion dinners with my large extended relatives and catching up. I do missed watching 'Wong Fei Hung' which gets aired endlessly on TV, and advertisements tailored with festive tunes blaring.

Playing mahjong and cards and visiting friends and of course, collecting red packets.

Hope you are all celebrating with friends and family and this is to the Year of the Rabbit! I leave you with a nice little video.


  1. Mr Noodles - Same to you. Did you like the video? =)

  2. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  3. Happy NY to you!

    Travelling for work is no way to spend CNY! This is my first one and I have to say I definitely prefer the weather on this side of the world.
