Happy Year of the Dragon

The Lunar new year was on Monday, and for the Chinese people, it is the year of the Dragon. It's supposed to be a very auspicious year just like the year before and the year after :)  I suppose it makes sense.  What's the point of predicting a year to be less than auspicious, eh?
One thing I do know is that I missed out on a major family feast on New Year's eve for the nth time in my life. In fact, the last time I was in China for the Chinese New Year was 2002! Just check out the food...

As to how I celebrated... I bought a Chinese New Year cake and Second Child and I ate some.  Yeah, it was pretty good, but nothing compared to the feast above, right?  Oh well, maybe next year... yeah right! :)
