Chinese new year, London style!

We went to see the celebrations in Chinatown today, and I thought I'd share some of the photos. I won't apologise for my appalling photography skills, you must all be used to it by now!

The start of the parade

Some of the professional dancers

The street decorations in Chinatown...

And some more.

My bag missed so my wish won't come true, but it still looks pretty.

This was a particularly amusing highlight from a free fortune cookie my brother was given.

I love London on days like today, it was so interesting! I learnt so much and saw such amazing things. I wish I could have taken more photos but the crowds made it almost impossible. It was a very good morning though! 

Kung Hei Fat Choi, everyone!

My friens sister adopted a baby from China and went to some really cool CNY celebrations (so that she can have connections with her culture). She keeps a blog and posted about it- the pictures were so amazing and the colors and everything! I would LOVE to go to something like this, im jealous, looks like fun! thanks for posting! x

It's amazing to think of that this is London! I really hope I get the chance to celebrate Chinese New Years. Maybe when I move to NY one day :P
