Happy Year of Snake
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!! For those of you who don't know, 2013 is the year of the snake in the Chinese zodiac. We wish you all "sum sheung si shing" (all your wishes come true) ♥
Whist preparing for Chinese New Year, many Chinese people visit traditional new year markets to buy snacks and decorations. Leigh, one half of the sister duo behind Dahlia who resides in Hong Kong, has visited the biggest new year market at Victoria Park and got some lovely photos taken to share with us!
This was my very first time visiting the Chinese new year market, and it was much more interesting and fun than I expected. Basically the market was divided into 3 sections, home decorations, cooked food and the legendary flower market.

Showing my true Hong Kong style, I did strike a pose with a peace sign : )
Fluffy and colourful pom-pom mum flowers, in Chinese culture they represent prosperity.
