Gong Xi Fa Cai!!!

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year!

Since it's Chinese New Year, I decided to cook pancit (noodles) last night (CNY's eve) because noodles represent longevity and long life. It's my first time to cook a NON-instant noodles, so I'm so proud that I did justice to the noodles because it was really pleasing to the palate (yeah love your own, LOL) :p

The sautéed rice stick-Chinese noodles with mixed veggies.
  
And today, I'm having tikoy (nian gao) for breakfast here at work because it is considered as good luck to eat (yeah right I feel so Chinese now =D). It has symbolism of raising oneself higher in each coming year.

Ok guys, in case you donno, I am Oriental but not Chinese. So, that's all for my CNY celebration... I'm leaving you with this... 
Three Chinese went to states to migrate. They're Mr. Bu, Mr. Chu and Mr. Fu.

They were requested to change their Chinese names to American names so they could mingle with everyone as normal Americans.

Mr. Bu was changed to Buck,
Mr. Chu was changed to Chuck,
And Mr Fu...

Was sent back to China. LOL. :p

Happy Chinese New Year!!! Where is my hong-bao?
