Happy Chinese New Year!

So, first let me start by apologizing for being slack lately. I know, I know.

Now, onto the real stuff...
Today we went to Chinese New Year Celebration at the Chinese Cultural Center in Chamblee (Chambodia). It was pretty cool but it was mostly food and crowds and pushy little ladies in orange.
We got there around one and paid our 5 bucks to enter and we received 2 dollars off our snacks. So we proceeded to scan all of the delicious food vendors. I got some sort of sausage wrapped in a noodle and fried and covered in sauce for a dollar and then a bowl of dumplings for 2.50. Olivia got some disgusting bean soup that tasted like saltless boiled peanuts with sugar water. GROSS. And then she got some boba tea/bubbletea which is also disgusting. Its like green thick sauce with sugarless unsweet gummy bear things floating in it. And they had all kinds of grody flavors. I don't know how I'll make it in Singapore but I plan to bring some snacks just in case I can't make it. Jane ended up buying a ton of food to bring home and eat all week. She's a smart lady.
While I was at this Chinese center we went upstairs to see some wares. Well, the little cut out man in glasses to the left was hanging on the wall and it was amazing. I love construction paper and I love this little kid's art. We also saw little dancing girls who were adorable. Even the unfortunate girl with the humungous ears was adorable but mostly because she was so serious about her dance moves.
Last but not least is this awesome little man. If I was a China man i would try to wear this every day. He reeks of wisdom.

This fest is going on tomorrow too so go check it out! Its down Buford Highway on Johnson Road or something like that. I'm sure you can google it but if you turn left after the Buford Highway flea Market you'll end up almost right there. Just listen for fireworks.
