It's a day late, but Happy Chinese New Year!  (Or if you prefer Lunar New Year).

Last year's CNY was pretty great.  I was working at a bank back then and all my coworkers were Chinese.  So it was pretty festive, everyone is wear red.  We also went out for a CNY lunch.  The little kid in me enjoy getting red pockets from the "adults" the most, I even got some from my customers!  It was quite surprising, as I did not expect that to happen at all!

This year, however, there wasn't much celebration going on for me.  I did have dinner with my family and relatives last Friday, and then with my roommates this Monday.  But that was it.  Oh well, but it's a brand new year, so I must be hopeful about how this year goes!  Anyway, here are some food photos from last night's dinner, excuse the phone quality photos.

Fried Vancouver Crab with Ginger and Onions

Garlic Bok Choy

Deep Fried Chicken

Chinese Eggplants with Shrimp
Nom, nom, nom... I want more food LOL.  I hope you all have had a wonderful Chinese New Year even if you're not Chinese.  I recommend checking out your local Chinese grocery store.  They put out some pretty festive snacks and food during this time of the year =).
