SUNDAY: Photo & Music
新年快乐！That’s “Happy Chinese New Year” in Mandarin Chinese! Tomorrow the 23rd of January, well it’s already “today” in China, will be the New Year of the Dragon and I wish you all, wordpress readers and passers by, a wonderful and prosperous New Year! 恭喜发财 and happiness to everyone!
I’d like then to share some pictures my mom has taken last year from the 15th floor of my apartment in Beijing, on the occasion of the bell striking mid-night on the New Year of the Rabbit! It has just been few years that in Beijing the government has allowed residents to lit up fireworks and fire-crackers and the city last year, and I suppose this year as well, went completely crazy! From my windows I could see the whole of Beijing towards the north, till the mountains surrounding the city and every single corner of the city was shining with lights. It was definitely the most remarkable New Year I have ever had. And the fireworks were literally exploding in front of my windows.. I was so happy to enjoy such spectacular view protected behind my apartment’s windows and in my favorite city in the world!
And I leave you with one of my absolutely favorite Taiwanese songs ever:
苏打绿 – 呢喃
Sodagreen – Murmur
