Chinese New Year

I went to a celebration in Kent on Chinese New Year. They had quite a lot of fun activities and the food was really great. I got to try ma po tofu, which was super yummy. Here is a video of some hip hop dancing!

Mahjong Party 3/12/10

Last night I had such a great time with my Taiwanese friends. I went over their apartment and we had dinner, played mahjong and just had a great time. Actually, my Japanese friend was there too and I got to learn more about Japanese culture, like her education experiences and that she worked at a mahjong store. She knew a lot of the Chinese words for the tiles and moves in the game. I was so jealous! I wish that I lived closer to Kent so I could hang out with them more often! Also, I really need more practice at mahjong so I don't keep losing. Here is a link to a definition of mahjong on Wikipedia for those who don't know what it is.
