Happy New Year!

If any of you have been watching the news lately, I'm sure you know it's the year of the Tiger

What you may not know is that it is also the year of the tiger in the Chinese Zodiac.

In celebration of this, Windnie and I went to the Chinatown Parade and Cultural Festival last weekend! We got there right in time to see the dancing dragon heads being pushed away on little carts :/

The sun was a-shinin'

The wind was a blowin'

And the poppers were a poppin'

And there were all sorts of adorable children around.

So we actually didn't make it in time for many of the performances/festivities... but we did get to wander around amongst the rubble of what was left of the celebration...

and eat a very delicious lunch! $3 for 12 very large and savory dumplings, what whaaaaaat.



  1. Sorry, buddy, but those are lion dance heads, not dragons! Cool pictures though! Those dumplings look delicious. :]

  2. i am scared of that last picture.... they must be alien brain sucking instruments...

  3. In Taiwan this (Heat perm) is very popular too. they hook each clip with heat, i think it might quicker than the old way and you can hear better =).
