    Chinese New Year is just around the corner, and it is celebrated with a feast on New Year's Eve. Recipes include egg drop soup, kung pao chicken, lemon chicken, chicken fried rice, Chinese almond cookies and Chinese egg tarts.  Enjoy the meal starting from the soup to finishing with a sweet treat! As there are many dialects in the Chinese language, I will use Cantonese to say: “Gung hay fat choy” (may you become prosperous) and “sun nien fai lok” (Happy New Year)! read more

    Chinese New Year - Lavish Splendor of Costume Design

    I chose to write about the clothing for the celebration as the fabrics, colors, designs and accessories are absolutely breathtaking.  The costumes for the Chinese New Year are an intricate part of their celebration.  I was fortunate enough to have a silk jacket made to my exact size when my son went to China, and the workmanship is fabulous.  I sent my measurements in advance of his trip and it fits perfectly, so the costuming seemed a logical choice for my hub.
