A random decision led us to going to Binondo for Chinese New Year. Food trip, lots of walking (and following the dragons and tigers around), free candies, and tikoy are what completed this fun-filled day spent with great people. And as if that still weren’t enough, this lucky day brought us two new friends. 🙂
Whenever I go to Divisoria with BF, we make sure to go to Ying Ying’s Tea House as much as we can (I for the fried noodles; him for the soy milk and the silver roll — he’s addicted to silver roll!)
After an awesome lunch at Ying Ying’s, we headed straight to our mission: finding the dragons!
I heard that about 6,000 tikoys were served at the plaza area…
And shirts were being thrown to those watching the parade…
Anyway, here some Chinese proverbs to keep in mind for a happy year ahead:
Make happy those who are near, and those who are far will come.
“I heard” is good; “I saw” is better.
Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.
Forget the favors given; remember those received.
If you want happiness for a lifetime; help someone else.
Happy Chinese New Year!!!
