So Chinese New Year was yesterday, and my classmates helped me celebrate in style. Besides the New Year’s Eve feast that we had, I got a calligraphy poster that is now hanging on my door…
…and a hongbao (red envelope) wishing me a happy new year, school acceptances, and good health!
I got to Skype with (most of) the fam! no Mom 😦 but still, not bad for an impromptu video chat across three continents!
And if that weren’t enough, this week I got NOT ONE, BUT TWO packages (!!) in the mail! And not only that, they both contained the most delicious home-baked goods! Thank you so much, Long and Shen! ❤
If this weekend was any indication, this should be a pretty darn awesome Year of the Snake! 🙂
