its the 2nd day of chinese new year .. and im happy. one thing though .. i dont think i would know how to teach my kids the chinese new year tradition ... the practises have been lost through time .. i think this may be the last generation of chinese who celebrate chinese new year like the real thing .. later on it'll be like christmas .. a commercial holiday ..

But the very different thing is that recent years the weather not so cold as it used to .I live in the north of china but the climate is warm and warm year after year ,I live in the north of China and lookforward to the cold weather as it used to ,Maybe it's the result of green-house ,maybe I don't know . Add one piece ,come to the village while the China Spring Festival and you'll feel the strong feeling of the Festival .

dollyjiang, sure, gong xi fa cai and everything .. the well wishes .. the hong paus .. the food, the drinks, the family, the friends .. but do you know how our grandparents practise this festival?? i reckon we've lost all that along the way ... well, our parents .. they have not taught us much .. maybe in china the tradition is still strong .. but here in malaysia, the media writes about all sorts of stuff .. like the chinese new year tradition and all .. i dont think many of us get the point .. do you? anyways dollyjiang ... gong xi fa cai!
