Of Cookies and Ang Pows

3 Feb

The Lunar New Year or more commonly called Chinese New Year here is all about family and food. For the adults, it’s about spending time with the family, going back to the hometown to visit the parents and relatives; it’s also about food, home-cooked meals and Chinese New Year cookies. One of the many favorites being love letters.

For the children, it’s learning about bonding with the family and the ang pows, collecting as many as possible. When I was young, besides the cookies, it was the ang pows that I looked forward to. The anticipation and the final tally was always a cherished moment. This feeling is the same with my own children now.

There’s 11 more days to celebrate Chinese New Year. Here’s to more cookies to savor and more ang pows to come!
