Chinese New Year Scenes From Hong Kong 2009

BY La Jolla Mom

Thought I’d share a handful of my Chinese New Year photos from last year. I wish I had taken more.

La Jolla Girl and I went to the Hong Kong Flower Market in Mongkok. It’s so beautiful before Chinese New Year with all of the traditional red lanterns, citrus trees, gourds and more. La Jolla Girl even scored herself a Chinese New Year Elmo lantern.

The dragon dance at the IFC mall in Central.

The dragon dance at our private club, Ladies Recreation Club (LRC) in the Mid Levels.

I wish I had a good photo of how beautifully decorated all the skyscrapers are this time of year. I know it’s not the most environmentally-friendly thing in the world, but I loved it.

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

  1. FYI, the Spring Festival aka Chinese New Year is also known as the Flower Festival and yes, the viewing of cherry blossoms blooming in Japan is derived from this indigenous Chinese tradition. Chinese families would view the blooming of the fruit trees in the South and have pictures of flowers or flowers brought indoors throughout China.
