This would be my 5th and most memorable Chinese New Year in Hong Kong.
Hoping to switch up the monotonous city celebrations of the Lunar New Year I asked my dad if he knew anyone in a small village that could invite us in for the holidays. Fast forward 2 days and we find ourselves in a very small village in the outskirts of the city, by invitation of a friend of a friend. This was how I had expected locals to celebrate the holidays, but as my parents live in the city center it's extremely rare to see such celebrations.
We were well taken care of with invitations to drink the local drink and to eat the local eat by "the Captain". He was a busy host, running around making sure everyone in the neighborhood was happy. Over Chinese New Year the uniform is usually coordinated red or gold and this year, he owned the gold. We followed the lion for a couple of hours and spoke with the friendly locals, and then headed back to the city.
My ears rang for two days from all the firecrackers.
