Catching Up #8: Tet / CNY

Chúc mừng năm mới!

Welcome to the Year of the Pig. Did you eat your bacon this morning?

Huong's parents were in Việt Nam this year for Tết (the Vietnamese Lunar New Year Festival), but we did the usual massive dinner at an Auntie's house. And of course, we got Trinh dressed up for the occasion...

One of the great things about being a kid in a big Asian family at this time of year are all the red envelopes (lì xì in VN, hóng bāo in Mandarin) that you get.

They're full of money!

Thank you, Aunties & Uncles!
