Penang Delights (Part 2): Welcoming The Year of The Magical Water Dragon

Gong xi fa cai! Happy Chinese New Year!
This pictures were from New Year Eve celebration in Penang, but since today is also a New Year - in Lunar Chinese Year - , I think it's just apt, haha!

Penang is famous for its culinary delights. Even common pork and wonton noodles bought at street food seller tasted good! Careful when you order iced tea, here iced tea means "teh tarik" or tea with milk and sugar. I had to repeatedly say: "No milk, no sugar, please!"

Since our hotel is so picturesque in itself, we decided to celebrate just at the front cafe. It felet very international, though, since we met tourists from all over the world celebrating together. And I do mean from all over the world: America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa!

Top: SportMax. Skinny jeans: Forever21. Fuschia purse: Palomino. Mint green purse: Les Catino. Sneakers: Nike. Gold gladiator sandals: Debenhams. Earrings: just bought in Penang.

This is what I had for New Year's Eve dinner. Not bad, but I had had better steak. Never mind. The feeling of peace, happiness, prosperity, international, and contentment in the environment was unbeatable.

What is New Year's Eve without firework? Bye-bye 2011! Hello 2012!
Wanna know a secret?
2011 has been fabulous...

However, 2012 is gonna be even better...

2012 is gonna be a great year!
Bye-bye, Mr. Golden Rabbit! Hello, Mr. Water Dragon!
In welcoming the new year, allow me to say:

GONG XI FA CAI, Everyone!
