This is going to be an expensive Chinese new year. The costs of the essential items/ingredients for cooking the reunion dinner have been on the rise. Those with big families are really feeling the pinch. My wife and myself will be flying to Jakarta, Indonesia to celebrate this Chinese new year with my son and his family. My daughter and son-in-law have just returned to England and will celebrate on their own. So we do not have to rush with others to stock up for the reunion dinner.
Now we are packing for our trip to China next week. We will be in China from 20.1.2011 to 27.1.2011 and then off to Jakarta on 30.1.2011.
