Chinese New Year, a.k.a Spring Festival, is the biggest festival in China and now it’s the second time for me to be alone here. Although technically I am not alone because of my roommates, it would be different to be home for sure. After talking to family members this morning, I continued to work as usual, thinking I might just spend the night in lab again. I felt satisfied for some reason, because calling home on new year eve actually means a lot to me. And of course, I cooked dumpling for myself at noon which was midnight in China-right on time.
Roommates and I had dinner together and we had some beer just for the new year. It was peaceful and so much for my Chinese New Year.
