so, it is chinese new year. this year, it closely followed australia day, which makes two meaningless "holidays" in a month because i'm in cambridge uk. anyway, happy chinese new year to those who are celebrating it.
last year, i wound up in hong kong on chinese new years eve, known as "the 30th", and on chinese new year. i remember that in contrast to christmas in uk where everything closes for two or three days. things only shut down for a couple of hours in hong kong coz people can't wait to make more money!
to me, spending chinese new year in cambridge just means a regular day as usual, just like when australia day rolled around, i didn't even remember it till that night when i was figuring out what day it was from my calendar.
cambridge is still that old boring place, nothing much to do on chinese new year.
