We decided to head out to one of the local malls to see some of the celebrations. But first, as Charlie would say... "Speedy sports car!" He gets so excited when he sees one:
Well, come to find out - it was only the Chinese drummers in the morning. So we leave and come back another day to catch the lion dance. It's a school night but Mommy makes an exception, as Chinese New Year does only come once a year. The boys get all dressed up:
Anyhow... after a few more deep breathes, we find a nice spot to take some photos.
And we found a nice spot outside the mall as well, by the main entrance. Good thing the taxis didn't run Daddy over while he was trying to take this photo!
Well, not quite the right way to feel (angry at Management!) during the first day of Chinese New Year. This Fire Monkey year is already stirring up some emotions! Hopefully the rest of the year will be better. Insha-Allah!
