A celebration, a time for new beginnings, we were privileged to be a part of it.
I really missed the lead up to Chinese New Year this year. The Waitrose CNY displays of 'Chinese' food such as Pad Thai and Massaman curry did little to add to the meagre atmosphere. Really Waitrose...at least use Chinese foods for a Chinese celebration. I would even have preferred Sweet and Sour Pork to Thai and Indian!
I really missed the amazing fireworks displays from our apartment's 29th floor balcony!
Chinese treats for all.
Amazing home made dumplings! A huge feast was had!
We all went for a walk, to work off some of our feast. We wandered by the Cutty Sark.
Visited the amazing Painted Chapel at Greenwich.
We chanced upon a practice recital at the Old Royal Naval College Chapel...what an amazing place to rehearse!
We reset our watches at Greenwich, after standing on the Meridian Line of course!
Gazed over the amazing city of London!
We then wandered back to our cousin's house for a feast of Shanghai Noodles before heading home, satisfied that we spent Chinese New Year, not in China but more importantly with our family!
May your Year of the Snake be prosperous and full of good fortune!
