If that's spelled correctly it says:
"Happy New YEAR!!!!
Now give me my red envelope!"
Um... this Chinese New Years, I
-saw lion dances. 3 different ones. One in the streets of Chinatown. That was crazy since they had FIRECRACKERS! The 2nd lion dance I saw did the whole cabbage/red envelopes eating act. The last one I saw was a modern-hip-hop-version. [Yea, the last one had the lion dancing to bits of the Lion King XD ]
-watched traditional Chinese dances such as the Talchum.
-watched people play traditional Chinese instruments.
-watched a hip/hop modern Chinese dance act
-watched a comedy act mixed with traditional Chinese martial arts. Some how they managed to include even Captain Planet in the skit. XD
-saw this guy do friggin AMAZING acts with a Chinese Yo-Yo. The yo-yo was going around his body, under his leg, up through the air. Truly was indescribable!
and of course...
ATE ALL YOU CAN EAT DIM SUM! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
