Chinese New Year Food ( Part II )

I have not been surrounded by so many Asian people...

since the last time I was in Chinatown, San Francisco in summer 2003.
There was a gathering of mainly Asian students tonight in the home of a local Abilene Church of Christ member and it was lotsa fun, meeting new people, having chinese dumplings and receiving ang pow ( red packets )!!


Can't wait till the 9th and 15th day of the Chinese New Year...(stay tuned)

Hey .... did somebody mentioned dumplings? My old time favorite. Lucky they have ready-made ones nowadays. Just plunge them into the hot water or deep fry it or steam it! Easy!

Well, I'm gonna run!

Tonight here the chinese people started the new year. It was a pitty that there was a huge storm and loads of rain, so we don't know if they have been able to have some firework. I understand there will be a couple of gatherings throughout the country here to celebrate.

Happy New Year!!!

on the first night of Chinese new year, I wasn't at my boyfriends, so I got a pint of wonton and ate it in my car on the way to the drug store, much to my surprise I save the plastic containers & it has the Chinese astrology signs on it!!! I was thrilled! all my billionsof other containers are plain!!!
