How I Spent Chinese New Year Away from Home..


Adelaide, Australia 

I had to fly off to Adelaide on CNY Day One and this was my first time being away from home during CNY. I felt a little sad because I had to rush off to the airport after the reunion steamboat at my aunt’s home. She made the best steamboat and I knew I could not miss it even if I had to pull my luggage around to bai nian. I guess this is the only time I get envious being an officer worker as they can enjoy an extended weekend break during this CNY period.

Arrived in Adelaide on CNY Day Two and we went to the Chinese restaurant which is nearby to our hotel.

Fish Ball Soup with Seaweed

This fish ball soup with seaweed was surprisingly good! Yummylicious! 🙂

We orded a table full of food but we managed to finish it all because we were famished.

I am pretty glad that I spend my CNY with a nice group of people. 🙂

Chinatown

After our lunch, we walked around the Chinatown.

As usual, there isn’t any distinctive Chinese characteristic that can be found in this Chinatown.

Glenelg Beach

We also went to Glenelg Beach which is about 30 minutes bus ride from our hotel.

It was a very hot summer in Adelaide and the temperature can reach up to 40 degree Celsius here. I prefer summer to winter though and I really think Singapore has the best weather all year round! 😀

Caught a glimpse of the sunset. 🙂

I had this pretty expensive Beer Battered Fish & Chips for dinner but it was really good. This was how I spent my CNY away from home and it makes me appreciate the chance to have a reunion gathering every year. Today is the last day of CNY and I wish everyone a prosperous Dragon year! Huat ah! 🙂
