Happy Chinese New Year

My new roommate, Britt, lived overseas most of her life (South America and Asia). She attended High School in China and so to celebrate Chinese New Year we went to her friend's home in Silver Spring and made Chinese food! They lived in China together and invited about 12 other people who had either lived in China or had some sort of Asian association. I love celebrating any sort of holiday so this was a lot of fun.

Me learning to how to cook Chinese food! I'm just getting all sorts of Asian cooking exposure lately. The little dumplings were fun to make and even more fun to eat!

Part of the spread - check out that fish! Eww. I guess they were going for authentic. The other dishes were all delicious though.

And not only did we enjoy Chinese food, but we also watched part of the movie "Shower" which actually seemed equal parts interesting and strange. It's all in Chinese and a majority of the movie seems to take place in public bath houses. One day I want to watch the whole thing start to finish because I really enjoy foreign films. We also watched (and some sang) to this little gem. Watch it once or twice and it will be permanently stuck in your head.

Happy belated Chinese New Year! It's the year of the dragon, which is supposedly the luckiest year in the Chinese Zodiak. Awesome.
