Happy Chinese New Year 2013 in the Year of the Snake

Today is Saturday, February 9th in China. Tonight is the beginning of the Chinese Lunar New Year, the eve of the year of the snake. Celebrations have already begun. Fireworks are being heard all around China. The mood is high; the fun is beginning. Tonight millions of people all over the world will watch the Chinese New Year’s Gala on TV…a 4.5 hour spectacle of entertainment from China.

I send you my New Year’s greetings, all the way from Kunming, Yunnan Province, China. The photo was taken with a beautiful Dai lady in her traditional ethnic costume at a CNY celebration dinner last week at Guandu Ancient Town, where I was invited to attend along with over 1,000 other guests – the only foreigner in the hall! What an honour!

About Roz Weitzman's World

Periodically in China since 2005 to research my cookbooks and travel in China and southeast Asia. Loving the experience. Want to keep in touch with my friends and family all over the world! I published my Chinese Cookbook called 'Roz Weitzman's World of Chinese Comfort Food'. This week I published my latest in my series of Chinese cooking called "Roz Weitzman's World of Yunnan Food". Please won't you scribble a thought or two. I really appreciate your comments! AND IF YOU SHOULD WISH TO REPOST MY RECIPES OR OTHER OF MY POSTS ON YOUR OWN BLOG, BE SO KIND AS TO POST A LINK BACK TO MY BLOG AND GIVE ME CREDIT FOR MY ORIGINAL WORK. MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE.
