chinese new year

Yesterday was Chinese New Year and some other holiday, too. I trekked out to Yokohama's Chinatown/Chukagai to ring in the new year.I read on the internet that this Chinatown is the biggest in Asia, so it must be true.
There were dancing lions, there were fireworks, there were hordes of people and shopkeepers handing out roasted chestnuts and bits of cake.
I ate veggie gyoza and spring rolls and sesame noodles at Mimika. It was a good evening.


  1. I forgot!!! :-(

    Fantastic last pic BTW

  2. Thanks! It's my favorite too.

    How did your macaron mission go?

  3. Wow wow! How pretty!! For all its classiness, Sapporo is definitely missing a china town. When I come down, can we go??

  4. Zehi zehi! That's in March, right? :)

  5. Macaron mission aborted for Valentine's day (Flo came down with my *wairus*). Caught up last Saturday as you know, had a cream vanilla chocolate thingummy instead of macarons, bad mistake, sugar overload. I'm too old for creme chantilly... *cry*

  6. Is it possible? I don't think it is. I'm older than you and now that you said that I think I NEED one. Need, not want.
