Not sure what I'm counting down to? Well.. it's the Chinese Lunar New Year on 26th January which is two days away. I'm all alone in this foreign land where no one gives two hoots about this event. No celebration, no well wishes and most of all no Good FOOD!
Let me tell you what I'm missing out. My family sitting around the table for Reunion Dinner. Time for Spring Cleaning and decorating the flat with lots of Red Stuff (and flowers). And of course, lots of food!!! Candies for the guests, mandarin oranges which is a customary practice for anyone visiting a Chinese family during the 15-day celebration and too many other things that have auspicious meanings for this joyous event.
So I'm sitting here with my lappie and thinking of how to celebrate this festival on my own. The best way is to decorate my place but that's not remotely possible for me at the moment. Thus, I have to think about a list of food to cook. Unfortunately, Mr M has been down with cold for days and couldn't go with me to shop for food. And therefore, me will do my CNY post a day late. Do pardon me.
Anyway, to all those reading this bizarre post, Happy Chinese New Year in advance! It's the year of the Bull! Let's hope it works on the stock market and lift our nations from recession sooner! Bull market, bull market!!
