Today is Chinese New Year. I wear my new dress and shoes. I go to my relatives’ homes and they give me angpows.
The Chinese in Malaysia celebrate Chinese New Year once a year in January or February. It is a big celebration for us. We light fireworks and firecrackers on the new year eve.
I love celebrating Chinese New Year because I don’t have to go to school. The adults give me angpows when I wish them happy new year. I am one happy girl because I earn so much money over a 3-day period.
