My favorite things at Chinese New Year

It's the eve of the Chinese New Year today and in a few hours' time, most families would be sitting down for their reunion dinners - it's one of those family dinners you can't miss every year.

There is so much to share about the Chinese New Year traditions that I thought I would list a few of my favorite things instead:

1.  The decorations - what a great way to get into the festive mood!

2.  Lion and dragon dances - especially since it is going to be the year of the Dragon


3. New year treats - dried persimmons (mom gets this from our local Chinatown every year), pineapple tarts, kueh lapis cake (lovely when it's baked with dried prunes!)

4. And of course, catching up with old friends and good conversation.

And finally, here is wishing you (if you celebrate) a very happy and prosperous new year!
