I wasn’t sure which photos to post for this week’s challenge, which is Culture, since there has been nothing in my life that has been photographically culturally interesting… (lol) but, browsing through this year’s photos, I found these:

I’m doing a Sunday post, I know, but this is to let you know that I won’t be at home on Monday and Tuesday, since from today I am going to celebrate the new year in a hotel! As the tradition wishes it to. Well, the Chinese-Mauritians’ tradition, hehe.

Happy Chinese New Year 2012!

Tomorrow is at last the most important festival of the Chinese tradition: the New Year! Even more important than the usual 1st Jan new year… My family and I have a lot to do… and enjoy!

This year will be the year of the Dragon – from the Chinese horoscope.

We’ve been busy ‘spring cleaning’ – yes because Chinese new year also symbolises the coming of spring time 🙂 – and buy new clothes! ^^ Then when the big day comes, we’ll first go to mass (here we’re almost all half-Catholic half-Chinese) and light firecrackers just like the ones I filmed on my New Year’s vid post. Hehe I can’t believe I’m still not deaf! And after a traditional lunch… We’re heading to the hotel!! Yeah! I’m going to stay for two nights thus I’ll return home on Wednesday (missing school I know lol but well every year’s it’s been like that!). I don’t know if I’m going to blog during my stay… Just to let you know. ^^

Happy Chinese New Year! Hope it brings good fortune 🙂 let loose the dragon inside of you!
