Chinese New Year Break

As I'm typing this, we're on a road trip back to our hometowns to celebrate the Chinese lunar year with first, my in-laws In Penang and then my parents in Ipoh. On a normal day, it takes about 3 1/2 hours to reach Penang but judging from the heavy traffic ahead, I think it will take us all day. Last year, we were on the road for 8 hours! Not fun especially when you're incontinent. The annual exodus to hometowns for family reunions celebrating the Lunar New Year holiday already started on Saturday. All that haste and urgency is because everyone's presence is expected during the reunion dinner on the eve of the Chinese new year.

Sounds like a lovely tradition to go back to family, Veronica, except for the actual traveling to get there :) Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Have a good time with family! My cousin is in Vietnam and she told me about the week long celebrations. I can only imagine what fun it would be in your part of the world.

Happy New Year! Wish you and yours a superb year ahead.

Hugs,
Tanya
