My Chinese New Year

So how did you spend Chinese New Year's?  Mine was better than any firecracker or dragon show--it was spent at sea surfing, in bed eating french toast & bananas, by the boardwalk making blueberry pancakes (w/c turned green, by the way), and road-trippin' w/ my cousin Charlie.

nutellas & bananas

impromptu breakfast-buffet-in-bed

We had coffee at a violin school in the middle of a mango orchard where I had a nice chat with a local film maker, who was showing his documentary to the local women.  

Hogwarts is real

this school was awesome. It shall be blogged soon. 

We also met & hung out with a vacationing 8-time Muay Thai World Champion who also wharfed down all my green pancakes, which I took as an honor & a compliment!

yesterday's images to share 1 last time before bedtime...

every minute is an hour
and oh, I saw a heart-shaped birthday lantern flutter off to the sky

...I'd say, not bad for the 1st long weekend of the year.

Kung hei fat choi! :-)
