then you know the Chinese New Year is nearly upon us.... about 3 weeks left to be exact.
Every chinese family who are celebrating this new lunar new year of the tiger will be very busy shopping for new cloths, new decorations for their homes and making cookies and cakes as gifts or for serving when guests come a calling. Banks will be busy changing new notes for customers to use for their angpows (red packet with money in it) to be given to those unmarried relatives or friends who visit. The children especially will be looking forward to receiving these little red packets of pocket money, but the parents will have a headache giving out the angpows of cos! hehe..
Maybe, I'll bake these very fudgy chocolate brownies for the lunar new year... the boys liked it..
