as i sit here facing my iMac, typing out this post i’m listening to Natasha Beddingfields Neon lights, which is one of my favorite songs and in my opinion, a somewhat accurate song to describe my mood right now. listening to my favorite song while write about my favorite time of the year, very appropriate in my opinion. i love chinese new year, it’s better than even christmas and my birthday. it’s that one time of the year where without fail the whole family gathers in someones house and spends the whole day for about 3 days catching up, gambling, eating together and enjoying yourselves.
to me, chinese new year is about being with family whether immediate or extended.
young or old
blood related or not
once a year we meet up, make noise, gamble and enjoy ourselves.
i love my family to bits and i wouldn’t trade them for anything else in the world no matter how much they irritate and infuriate me sometimes.
