Welcoming the year of pig

And so the past few weeks of washing and scrubbing has paid off just for today. I remembered when I was young I looked forward for Chinese New Year as that is the time where my cousins and I get to throw pop-pops, lighting the stick that produces fireworks spark and eating all the yummy goodies and sweets. Looking back, I think we were simply in a world of our own as I had not known the tiredness of preparing for a new year.

Now that I’ve grown up, I’m not exactly looking forward for such events as they seem to be the same year after year. Even though all the hard work, it’s still great to celebrate Lunar New Year with new clothes and red packets to collect and most importantly, it’s a great time for family reunion.

Have a great and prosperous Chinese New Year.
