Happy Lunar New Year

I am very tired now. I thought i should just post a quick update and greetings here before going to bed.

Mom and I spent the day with the Chinese members from the church here. We went to the Botanic Garden in the afternoon, and then went back to the church for reunion dinner.

All of the people are from China and Taiwan; there were no Malaysians from this church. One of the traditions of Northern Chinese people is to make dumplings together during reunion dinner. That was what we did, and for the first time in my life and for my first CNY in NZ, I actually made a few dumplings on CNY eve.

Everyone gathered in the church kitchen and made dumplings together

The "work-in-progress"

The sumptuous meal on CNY eve

All the people were very friendly and nice. We had an enjoyable time.

There will be celebration again tomorrow with Chinese of different nationalities from another church. It feels good that even though we are in a Western country and there isn't any CNY atmosphere here, we do not really feel lonely at all.

Wishing everyone a Lunar New Year filled with joy and good health! 新年快乐,心想事成!


新年快乐! Glad you got a car :) Be safe.
