Happy Lunar New Year — 恭喜發財 (gong xi fa cai)!

Not that I’m much of a traditionalist, but I’m wearing some red, and no black or white. And I won’t wash my hair tonight. And I had noodles for lunch (for longevity) and I’ll have an orange tonight (for good fortune); I’m also gonna drink some tea, but I think that’s just cos I like tea. :p

No firecrackers everywhere alas — check out Elyse Sewell’s Journal (she’s in China) for some clips of the fun: oxing day.
