Chinese New Year's Firework 2009

Chinese New Year 2009 nearly comes to an end. Before it ends, I think it is still not too late to say GONG XI FA CAI to all of you. Well, during this CNY, I’m enjoying visiting relative and friends. Like what we already knew, happy moment always end fast. My one week holiday just pass through like flash and until now I’m still in very strong CNY mood which cause me can’t concentrate on my study for the time being. I should skip more classes to make my holiday longer.

Beside visiting relative and friends, the most enjoyable moment during CNY at 12.00a.m. on the first day of CNY. During that time, we Chinese will play with fire cracker and firework which is believe that it will chase away bad thing and bring good luck. However, this year I found that the amount of firecracker and firework in my area have decrease. This might due to the economy crisis. Well, no matter what I do hope that this only for temporary and all the good things are coming in this New Year.

Below is the short clip I took during the 1st day of CNY. Although I did not have the clip for pass few years but the amount of firework really decrease at my place.

Gong Xi Fa Cai TNH and thanks for visiting my page. :)

I hope you don't mind TNH, I'll answer to Leizlmarie question.
The phrase "Gong Xi Fa Cai" is Chinese Mandarin while the "Kung Hei Fat Choi" (which is often used by us in the Philippines as a greeting) is Cantonese, it's the language used mainly in Hong Kong.;)
