Lunar New Year 2017

Check out my video for the Lunar New Year parade shot and edited by Stephen McFadden. Then take a peek at my photos from the celebrations at Chua Phat Phap in St. Petersburg, Florida.

This little red envelope is a Li Xi- elders give children money to wish them a prosperous new year full of good fortune and good luck.

ALL the Vietnamese coffee! The coffee grounds are usually Cafe du Monde with condensed milk mixed in.

Mom and Rebecca.

That’s my uncle Chu Hien running things.

Me and grandma! She put her teeth in =P
