2013 Chinese New Year.. Year of the Snake by bchhuor on Polyvore
Dear Loves,ย 
Sorry for the posting “delays”.. Life happens as you all know it ๐Ÿ™‚
Anyhow.. today’s inspiration is… CHINESE NEW YEAR! Happy New Year to all my fellow Asians out there and to those who celebrated the day with us just because :). This year is the year of the Snake which means ”ย The Snake is the intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily. They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time.” (more info on the Snake and other Chinese Horoscopes can be found on
Each and every New Years Eve, my family and I will always get together for lunch and dinner with homemade goodies made by Chef mommy and Sous Chef sister. Always great food with great company and of course all the unmarried kids await for the most anticipated “RED ENVELOPE”. If you guys have no idea what this Red Envelope is, (shame on you ๐Ÿ™‚ I kid I kid!!) the Red Envelops is a tradition passed down from ancestors to ancestors. Given by the Elders to the children in the family, each envelop represents great future, health and prosperity. It could possibly mean other things.. but from what I know that is what the Red Envelops mainly represent. Inside these envelops are, almost always, money with whatever amount the adult decides to throw in. These envelops are given to children and young adults up until either they are married or are 21 depending on what they’re parents believe in. Me.. well lets just say I’m not 21 nor am I married (not even close:( ย ).. it’s a win win situation for me ๐Ÿ™‚ Read the rest of this entry ?
