With my cousins, grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles...You have not even seen my extended family YET!
With some of my close friends from all over!!

Am I right about the above? Do you guys celebrate the same way too???
Gong Xi Fa Cai! May all of you have a prosperous, happy, lucky and successful year ahead!!!
