Happy Lunar New Year & Happy Valentine’s Day… from NYC!
Once in a while, two holidays fall on the same day… this is the year! It’s Vday + Lunar New Year (Year of the Tiger)!!! I was thinking how great it is to be in this city on these 2 particular holidays.. and then I ran into this ad on our way to our Vday dinner :
Walking around Manhattan it really felt like Valentines Day… passing little floral stands with colorful flowers, resturaunts with yummy Vday menus and decor, and bakeries filled with sweet treats seen easily through the windows. We ran into so many pretty pretty things. Here are a few of them…
As much as loove sweets, I LOVE flowers more………………… 🙂
Towards the evening, we thought since we are asian afterall, and missed the lunar new year festivites at home, we would visit Manhhatan’s Chinatown! Although we ended up arriving in chinatown AFTER the main festivities (dragon parade), we found that store vendors were still open (on a sunday night) and the street patrons were still celebrating .. and in line after line for some good asian grub. Here are some of the sites we saw! (it was like a mega celebration aftermath… Mardi Gras + Vday + Lunar New Year, chinatown style. =) )
Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy Valentine’s Day and a new YEAR of love, happiness, laughter, health, prosperity, joy, and surroundings of all things beautiful.
