Happy Chinese New Year!

Narcissus flowers... they smell so good!

Chinese New Year falls on February 3rd this year, so this weekend there were festivities in Chinatown! Usually, the city closes down a few streets and there are demonstrations and mini parades of Chinese Lions... Unfortunately we missed the lion dances! Luckily, many malls in Hawai`i do Lion Dances throughout the month of Chinese New Year, so we'll probably have the chance to feed the lion money and get good luck for the rest of the year!

It seemed a little less busy this year but maybe that was because we went at an off hour. It was alright though, because at the Cultural Plaza there were lots of food stalls and vendors, including this little tent which was selling glass charms. All in all it was loads of fun!
