Kung hey fat choi/Gong xi fa chai and welcome to the year of the dragon! And making my Chinese heritage proud – I am obsessed with the colour red. It’s actually more than obsessed. I found myself sorting laundry one day and wound up with a sizable pile of…you guessed it – RED; which wound up being a load of its on. That’s how much I love red. And coincidentally, Chinese culture and history loves it too; corresponding the colour red with fire – symbolising good fortune and joy and that’s why you find it every which way during Chinese/Lunar New Year. Literally everywhere. I couldn’t be happier! So of course – I had to go out and grab a few items for myself in this lovely hue.
And here are some other pics from our Lunar New Year weekend! A trip to the Friends-International/Mith Samlanh Lunar New Year-themed Fun Fair – always a treasure trove of laughter, food, and fleamarket fun. And then D found the most amazing place to view the Phnom Penh sunset! And who knew it’d be one of those new fangled hotel/condo/apartment blocks across the Tonle Sap River?
