What is Chinese New Year? To me, it is a dateline to fulfill after many, many days of preparation [shopping, cleaning, baking, cooking etc]. Many says if you don't go through these, there is no CNY mood. So must do and do to have that feel of celebration coming soon.
Anyway, when you have older people in the house, all these duties must be done. Hopefully, one day when I'm that age, I would scrape most of these routine things and sit down to enjoy CNY like those days when we were young [everything taken care off by our parents and grandparents]. But nowadays, the younger generation won't do much for you. They too wants to simplify the traditional practices. Is it a good thing or bad thing?
Wow! before I start my 'CNY duties' at my MIL's place, the most important thing to do now is to send my CNY greetings and wishes to all readers and fellow food bloggers. It's great fun having all of you around all this time. The encouraging comments and sharing of valuable views about baking, cooking and all the things that are happening are very much appreciated. Hope all these wonderful times will remain for as long as possible.
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR 2013
TO ALL CHINESE READERS, FELLOW FOOD BLOGGERS
AROUND THE WORLD
MAY THIS CHINESE NEW YEAR BRINGS
PROSPERITY, HEALTH AND WEALTH
TO ALL OF YOU
AND TO NON-CHINESE READERS/BLOGGERS
