Just a quick one to wish everyone a happy Lunar New Year!
As most of us know, according to the Chinese Zodiac, it’s the year of the Rabbit this year. That means that it’s my year this year! 😀 However, I’ve just discovered that for the Vietnamese, instead of the Rabbit, it’s the year of the Cat! My two cats would be pleased to know that, I expect! 😀
I decided to go traditional this year and wore a Cheongsam/Qipao! The bad bit about wearing a Cheongsam during Chinese New Year is that because it is so form fitting, it does get uncomfortable if you eat too much!! But it does look flattering, and I guess maybe it will help to curb over-eating during the festive season??
My sisters and I picked ours out during our Yunnan trip in December, and it’s got a bit of an unusual collar that I thought was quite cute! (: Sadly, I did change out of it into something a bit more comfy at the end of the day when I went to visit my boyfriend’s family so I could run around with the kids and dogs!
It’s been quite a nice Chinese New Year so far for me, especially since I haven’t celebrated it with all of my family for nearly 5 years! I’m just not too keen on people starting to ask if I’ll be getting married soon… I didn’t think I’d be getting those sort of questions for a few more years!?
But anyway! Here’s hoping everyone else is having a great time relaxing during this long weekend holiday, eating lots of goodies and collecting hongbao money! (:
Gong Xi Fa Cai! (:
