Thursday Doors: Postscript CNY Photos!

On another trip to Macau, PRC, two days ago with my son, I was delighted to see their Chinese New Year decorations were still up!  I know the holiday is over, but I wanted to share these anyway.

    1. It is indeed a fascinating place to visit. It’s a little too crowded to live there, but fun to visit. =)

    1. Hi! My son has been with us for a year now. Before he was in the US and Australia for several years so I am ‘over the moon’ happy he’s with us for a while before his next adventure.

      For the red, I wrote this from another post so I just copied and pasted (hehe) … “Red is a lucky color in Chinese culture. At festivals, lanterns that decorate the streets are often red. The most common color is red for Lai See packets, that are filled with money and given as gifts during Chinese New Year. The color red denotes happiness and good fortune. A red door implies a happy home inside. Doors are often painted with a fresh coat of red just before Chinese New Year to invite good luck and happiness.” Love you stopped by! =)

      1. Thank you for the explanation of red! I knew vaguely something was going on with your son, but I forgot what – I understand too well -for our son worked for 5 years in China and 8 years lives in Holland.

    Brenda, it must be great to have your son back again, although it’s great to be able to go on adventures while you’re young as it’s much harder once you settle down.
    We still have both our kids at high school and living at home and it’s hard to imagine them living away. I went overseas for a year when I was 22 and jetted off more concerned about leaving my friends and a certain love interest behind than saying goodbye to Mum and Dad. My kids were much the same when they went away on the Scout Jamboree for about 2 weeks. Once they saw all their friends, they barely acknowledged us and we just received a cursory “Bye”.
    Finally getting onto your photos, they were great and it was interesting to see another culture and experience a festival. I love a good festival.They can be so much fun.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena

    1. It really it, Rowena. My son and daughter grew up traveling with us, so they keep on the move now that they are adults. When the four of us are all together, it is quite a treat and I cherish the time. I hope you enjoy time with the kids now! I, too, love a good festival. It makes me happy. =)

        Our daughter is fairly serious about pursuing a career in dance so I can see her moving all over the place and goodness knows what our son will get up to. I don’t want to pin them down but at the same time, can’t imagine them not being around. That said, I could well be spending more time caring for my parents once they move out. However, somewhere along the line, it would be great to get a few of my writing projects polished off.
