This is the first day for the Year of Horse. Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

 

As my little boy likes asking questions about the Asian children in the playground, I decide to teach him more about Chinese cultures like the Zodiac (which I found the same Zodiac in Japanese plushies too), traditional paper cutting and paper lanterns.
