Chúc mừng năm mới + hotpot

Happy Vietnamese/Chinese new year to all of you! This year will be the year of the monkey. Hopefully you all have a nice 2016 and especially the monkeys!

All the children will be given a red lucky envelope which is called ‘li xi’ in Vietnamese. This envelope contains money so everyone is extremely happy when they receive this. With my family we just celebrated this day with a lovely dinner, hotpot. It consist of various raw meat, seafood, vegetables, tofu and noodles, which are dipped into a pot of hot flavored broth. It’s a very cozy dish to eat together since you all dip your food in the same pot. May 2016 be even better than 2015, cheers!IMG_0099IMG_0101IMG_0103IMG_0108
