Happy Chinese New Year of the Tiger

Happy Chinese New Year of the Tiger everyone! It's the same routine every year as we celebrate the first day of chinese new year.

Every Chinese New Year, we dress our chinese new year best and off we go to Ah Ma's (hokkien for grandmother) house to collect our "angpows" early in the morning. Ah Ma wishes me all the wonderful chinese blessings as she gives me the ang pow. Then we take a family photograph together.

We get really excited to go to great grandmother's house. Great grandmother whom we call "Tai Ma" is 98 years old this year. We're excited because of the lion dance performance and the loud fire crackers! We collect lots of ang pows and play with many cousins. Almost everyone dresses in red and gold as a mark of prosperity.
