Happy New Year! Google has a wonderful graphic, showing an adult rat changing the calendar from a pig to a rat, while two small rats look on. Clicking on the graphic gives search results for Chinese New Year.

My wife and I are off to a New Year party on Sunday, complete with red packets for the children. Red packets are red envelopes with money in them, and unmarried children of any age get them as New Year's presents.

Gung hay fat choy to everyone!

When we lived in New York, we would go out to a restaurant where we ate lo han jai (sometimes called “Buddha’s Delight”) and Peking duck three ways (in pancakes with hoisin sauce; in a dish with beansprouts; and as soup), and several other dishes.

We don’t have good Chinese restaurants here; I plan to make dumplings anyway — something Chinese.
