Chinese New Year 2010

Chinese New Year was special this year. It just happen to take place during the Olympics, Valentines Day as well as right near my birthday, so it was just so much celebration all at once.

On that Sunday I joined a bunch of people for a Dim Sum style brunch, before we headed out to Chinatown. Unfortunately we didn’t make it in time to see the parade, but it was still pretty busy with many things to explore.

The building below was renovated and in the courtyard at the back was an art installation with beautiful white umbrellas joined together to create lanterns. Apparently at night they light up, but I didn’t get to check that out. I did think they looked really amazing against the bright blue sky.
