Gong Xi Fa Cai
Gong xi fa cai, everybody. Congratulations, get rich. We are in Penang, Malaysia to celebrate Chinese New Year with my mother, Freda, and her husband, Ken. Close friends and family know that Penang is not just another random destination in our explorations. No, Penang, or more precisely nearby Butterworth, is Ken’s hometown. After more than 17 years, we will finally be meeting Ken’s family and experiencing a real, down home Chinese New Year’s celebration.
