Chinese New Year to me now is…

chinese new year diy angpow lanterns

When I was a child, I loved Chinese New Year. I always look forward to celebrating the Chinese New Year eventhough that means travelling 5-6 hours (I think) by bus with my family back to my hometown in Malacca. I still remember clearly waking up early in the morning to the appetising aroma of Maggi Chicken Instant Noodles. We always eat that before travelling. After having breakfast, I was always forced to eat ‘travelling pill’ […]

Ang Pow Fish Lantern

I’ve got many requests for this Ang Pow Fish Lantern. I’m not too sure why when there are many more other beautiful lanterns that we can do. Maybe because it is a fish and Chinese people like fish?
