I hope all of you guys who celebrate Chinese New Year had a great celebration! As I mentioned earlier I was going to Scotland to celebrate with ChenChen. I was there for 4 days, and we tried our best to make it as Chinese as possible, we both thought it would be “easy” to make it like in China, but wow.. We were wrong.. Although it was really nice it was nothing like the celebration in China. I arrived on Thursday (January 30th) and we had invited a few people to celebrate with us, mostly Chinese and 3 people from his class that were not Chinese. We didn’t have time to cook food ourself, unfortunately but we did order food from a Chinese restaurant! I guess there’s not much to say about the celebration, 10 people, lots of yummy food, dumplings and a crazy amount of alcohol for the alcohol-lovers.. haha! I think that saved their night! Instead of writing a long post about what we did, I will add some photos for you guys to look at 🙂 I have to say I totally forgot to take photos, but we tried to make the 4 days I was there as “Chinese” as possible..
The local Chinese supermarket, funny thing, we happened to walk in there exactly 12 am China time, and they were all celebrating, and then we walked in, I was the only foreigner in there, and they started handing out small gifts, and they said “If you know some Chinese words we will give you” little did they know that I speak Chinese with my MIL every day.. haha.
So this is actually what we got from the supermarket, because I knew some Chinese words..

All the yummy food 😀
饺子！ We didn’t actually use the forks.. We used chopsticks, the forks were there because we had been eating some fruits and we used forks for that.. >.<
This is what I woke up to the next morning.. haha
