I wish I was born Asian. I love Asian culture, I love Asian food, I love the way Asian families seem to look after each other and out of every country I have visited before, Asia has been one of my best.

This week has been Chinese New Year and we have been celebrating and partying whenever we could. Yesterday we visited the Nanhua Temple in Bronkhorstspruit to celebrate with everyone during the day. They had an amazing festive celebration and we enjoyed some of the really good food that we miss from abroad.

These 3 sepia photographs are of the Emperor beings giving good luck envelopes to everyone.

This photo is just of an elderly lady worshiping. I like the lighting of it.

In the end, forget about the photos and let this post serve to wish you all a Happy Chinese New Year. Hope this year is an amazing one.

Thanks for reading, M
