Kung Hei Fat Choi (Happy New Year) to you!  This post is about Chinese New Year, or as it’s also known as Spring Festival.  Romping around Hong Kong lately, I’ve enjoyed the festive air and new year’s decorations.  This new year is the year of the dog, which begins on February 16, 2018.

I came upon this temple yesterday when walking through a neighborhood looking for a friend’s flat.  It was an unexpected treat!

Later the same day, my husband and I wandered around the bustling part of our city to enjoy the sites of Spring Festival!

This door leads to a wonderful noodle shop in Tsim Tsa Tsui.  As the noodle signifies, I hope for you, long life.  I also wish you happy new beginnings and good fortune this Chinese New Years!!

    Happy Chinese New Year ✨ Lovely to see all the decorations. I used to love this time of year when living in Malaysia. And the ang pows (red packets) with money from my mom’s friends! There’s a festival in Helsinki but unfortunately I’m down with the flu and will have to miss it.

    1. I’m so sorry Suvi that you are sick and hope you feel better soon! My kids have wonderful memories of receiving lots of red packets like you in Malaysia. That’s so fun. In Chinese, they are called “lai see” packets and I just got a bunch from HSBC to give out. Feel better! =)

    1. Thanks so much! I was born in the year of the “rat.” My kids have awesome years (the dragon and the tiger). So, I’m not sure how I feel about that. hehe

  6. Beautiful places. I love those paintings above the door of the temple. They look like tiles. Are they?
