Happy Chinese New Year!

No, contrary to what my features show, I am not Chinese. Maybe in another life I was, but no, I am purely Filipino :)

Still, because I have a weird fascination with Chinese culture, I wish to greet all of you a heartfelt Kung Hei Fat Choi!!!
I know the dress is not really Chinese. I actually got this one from Vietnam but since it's the only "Oriental" thing in my closet, I had to make do with it :P

Since I wanted it to look more modern, I paired it with strappy sandals to wear out. The dress is actually a traditional Vietnamese dress, even the fabric and stitching looks and feels "authentic". I always have a hard time thinking of when to wear it out so I was so excited when I remembered I could wear it in time for Chinese New Year! Woot! :)

Kung Hei Fat Choi to the Chinese!--which reminds me, I have Mandarin class later. Wonder what food our "lao shi" will bring *wink!
