Most of the evening though, I was glued to Steve. Elena quote: "Too bad I don't have a picture of that!".
Oh, on the way back home, on a 7 train, we saw the strangest thing. We've heard of falling asleep in a subway car. But come one, we've all done it, but certainly not like this:
And Yup. That's the end of the another crazy day in the metro city ~ - Jess

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday of the year for the Chinese. The Chinese will settle all the debts they can, buy oranges for good luck and kumquat trees to decorate their homes, and clean the house. There will be a family feast, and the older people will give little red packets of luck money (ang pau) to the youngsters. Usually there is a parade, including lion and dragon dances, stilt walkers, floats and acrobats. And there is noise: fireworks at midnight, gongs, drums and cymbals at the parade. Doorways get a fresh coat of paint and the windows get decorated with paper cut outs. Happiness, wealth, and long life are the primary themes.
Many families will play cards and board games on the evening of the Chinese New Year's eve while they wait for midnight. Every light in the house is traditionally left on. Early the next morning, the red money packets are given out. Then people go door to door to wish their neighbors and relatives a prosperous new year.
Fifteen days later the lantern festival marks the end of the month-long New Year season.
The Chinese are not the only people who celebrate the holiday. The Koreans, Tibetans, and many other Asians keep the holiday. In Vietnam the holiday is called Tet.
Happy Chinese New Year to one and all. For you, who live in Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, United States, Vancouver, Australia or any other places in the world, Happy Chinese New Year once again!
Have a safe, and prosperous year ahead. I wish all my Chinese (speaking) readers a Happy Chinese New Year whether you are speaking Mandarin: "Gong Xi Fa Cai" or Cantonese: "Kung Hei Fat Choi"!

I thought that if I cried perhaps, that would release my emotions, but I can't cry. I can't sleep well either. Someone have tried to cheer me up, from telling me jokes to tried to understood my situation, lol. And still, I am in this awful mood. It was supposed to be my relaxing day. A nice quiet day that I normally love after a hectic week. Still my mood is down the drain.
I had a conversation with my counselor today, less than an hour talk, but it does showed me what the problems are, what is the thing been bothering me a lot lately. For a long time, Id been holding my breathe, I swallow everything that either good or bad by myself, I have burdens. Is heavy and stressful, I been carrying all these things from time to time. It didn't hit me until this couple years. I'm tired yet I don't want to give up.
It's just the way it is.
Maybe I am just tired from running around all week.
Maybe I am just tired.
Or maybe I am tired.
I don't know. I hate the way I feel right now. Nothing really helps.
