Chinese New Year

Xin Nian Kuai Le!

We started the Chinese New Year’s day by meeting up with willariah and eggyplant for coffee in our ‘hood then picked up Blee and headed north, at noon, to Pacific Mall. That was a daring move, yes, since it was noon on Chinese New Year and we were driving! Anyone who’s ever driven to Pacific Mall and attempted to park knows exactly what I’m talking about! However, the luck gods were shining on us and we found a spot licky-split!

We shopped, we collected ‘hong bao’, we pigged out (fitting for Year of the Pig) on dim sum at Market Square, we fed the dragon that stopped by our table so we’re destined for much luck this year, we met another Xangster, Issey. We then headed home for more dumplings. It was a wonderful day!

Which One First? …
The answer to Friday’s question was easy for anyone who knows me. I’ll start my answer by reminding folks that G and I flew out to Los Angeles in May to see Madonna launch her Confessions Tour. So, the answer, of course was Madonna … all two luscious, wonderful hours of it. Eprops to onetonman for calling this one correctly!

  9. LUCKY! You went out to dim sum! Btw, do you like chicken feet? I’ve never eaten it, and I don’t find it delectable. My parents keep telling me to try it, but it just doesn’t sound tasty. Hehe.
