happy lunar new year
Just in time for a little new year celebration, the nice folks at White on Rice Couple sent me a flowering tea to try and they sent it in style. Check out this gorgeous li xi envelope (never mind that it’s not the traditional red). In the background is an old photo of me holding a paper lantern*. I’m guessing I was about 3 years old standing at the door of our house in Saigon.
Happy New Year!
|* Mom told me that certainly is not a New Year photo: “For New Year, there would be pots of trái tac (small tangerine) or blossoms of some flowers I don’t know the names, one is dahlia, and fire crackers. Inside the house, there should be branches of yellow hoa mai or pink cherry blossoms and trays of food, AND you must wear new clothes, not in “casual” like that kid!”|
