Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Technically it's lunar new year since other cultures celebrate it as well. I'm making this a Chinese New Year post and the Leibster Award post because both are rather short XD
For lunch, we had tang yuan which is translated as glutinous rice balls with red bean paste AHAHAH but it's really good :3 I eat it occasionally too but it's mainly a new year's food. A lot of my favorite foods are new years food X)
Then for dinner we had a lot of dishes :D The funny looking things on the lower left plate (the yellow plate) are nian gao which is rice cake with this batter over it. It's another new year's dish that I loooOOOooove :D
After, we ate oranges and apples for luck and peace respectively c: We're going to eat oranges and apples today too. I've been eating so much lucky candy (new year's candy that's strawberry flavored omg *__*) that this year should be great for me XD I also got the red bags of money so I'M OFFICIALLY NOT BROKE.

“I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails.” -Pudge (Paper Towns)
“There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater,you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.” -Dave Barry
