Hong Bao, originally uploaded by AkumAPRIME.

“Gong shih fah tsai. Hong bao na lai.” This phrase literally means, “Congratulations on being rich. Bring me hong bao(the red envelopes).” It translates to, I hope you get rich, give me money. Kids tell this to adults, who give them money filled hong bao.

Today is the Chinese new year, which begins the year of the dog. According to tradition, all dogs(those born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994) will have Bad luck this year, so watch out!

I spent the day with my friend Joyce’s family, travelling to An Ping, eating good food, and playing cards.
