Happy Chinese New Year!

Saturday evening found us in Westminister in "Little Saigon" to join the masses who were celebrating Chinese New Year (even though its a Vietnamese community! lol) Here are some photos of the evening:
Its the year of the Ox! I was snapping picture while we were waiting for our bbq pork buns to warm up. Mmmm....it was the closest thing to manapuas there. lol
Everyone was lighting fireworks to celebrate the festivities. It sounded more like a drive by lol
Most of the vendors were all selling the same thing: mums, orchids, cherry blossoms, persimmon trees, pots, fire crackers, and paper ornaments/New Year Ox memorabilia.Some vendors sold cool toys, like these superhero glasses that light up or blink!I think I made the better superhero:)
Live snails anyone??? Leni says Polys like to eat them raw or boil them. Raw?!? Yikes!These looked much more appetizing!

Can I tell you again how much I like your bangs.

So what super power did those glasses give you? Besides looking awesome, which I don't think counts as a power.

Uhh....it made me invisible. Which is why I then proceeded to strip myself of any clothing that could keep me from running fast as I could through the streets...invisible of course :)
