Today I made this 8"x12" Lantern block to congratulate my chinese friends who celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year. I found the idea in here.
Yesterday our neighbor sent us a box of Nian gao, known as Chinese New Year pudding, made up of glutinous rice flour, wheat starch and brown sugar. Delicious to eat Nian gao with hot tea without sugar.
In Chinese family their children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and recieve money in red paper envelopes (Ang Pow).
