Chinese New Year 2016.

This year was a different Chinese New Year experience for us from last year. Last year, being our first year in Hong Kong, we tried to experience everything that the city had to offer, and this year we found ourselves in the bed with a stomach bug. We opted for a steak dinner at Tango in Soho with friends, instead of joining the crowds in Tsim Sha Tsui to watch the parade. We thought about bringing a picnic to the park with our friends the following night to watch the fireworks, but woke up with the stomach bug. We saw several dragon and lion dances from the window of our apartment that were happening down on the street below us, but we didn't make any extra effort to check them out and watch them. I love the decorations that get put up around Chinese New Year, the bright colors and the lanterns have a festive beauty to them.
