Chinese New Year

Gung Hey Fat Choy!  
Sing to health and wealth
Happy New Year
Gung Hey Fat Choy!

Yes, I made up that amazingly fabulous song to teach my classes WITH instruments.  My talent amazes me. 

I've been teaching my students all about Chinese New Year so Thursday my family received a similar treatment.  

After-school cuttlefish and shrimp snacks from the Asian Market. 

Music with unintelligible words and a lot of banging to wake up the dragon.

$3.00 silk fans (they're really Japanese, but they were cute)

Chinese bubblegum in unique flavors that doesn't stick to your nose

Jasmine sorbet for a palate cleanser that Ladybug said tastes like lotion.

 Chinese party poppers that ended up taped to Ladybugs ceiling for a Mardi Gras meets Fairy Garden effect

A friend called Ladybug toward the end of the meal.  I heard, "Not today.  My family is in the middle of this really cool dinner and I don't want to miss any of it."
