“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.” ~ Bill Vaughn

 

It’s the year of the Tiger! Hurray! My year! I wonder if anything lucky will happen to me this year? The last time it was my year was in 1998 . . . can’t really remember what we were doing that year. I think that was the year we moved from Taiwan to Orem, Utah. . . I guess in a way that was lucky.

Anyways, to celebrate, we had a little Chinese New Year shindig. A bunch of my friends came over, including some of my cousins. We decided this year to try more traditional foods, which I think freaked out some people! Haha.

Here we are eating our “fire pot” dinner:

The crazy girls:

Everyone at the party born the year of the Tiger:

My friend Sharon got dressed up really nicely in a traditional qipao, and then we realized it looked quite a bit like my mom’s wedding dress, so I put it on and we took some pictures!

All in all, a fun party! Happy New Year!

新年快乐 ! 恭喜发财 !
