Kung Hei Fat Choi!

It's almost five hours to go and it's New Year's eve for all Chinese people, chinovela fans, kikiam, noodles, pansit, siopao and siomai lovers! Probably, it would be very nice to visit Binondo and Quiapo and the other Chinatowns around the globe. Just a little info: according to myths and legends, Chinese new year began with the fight against the mythical creature "Nian" (year). Nian would come on first day of new year to devour livestock, crops and even villagers nearby (especially children). In order to protect themselves, they put food on the front of their doors everytime new year comes and it was believed that when Nian ate the food they prepared, he would probably leave the village. The villagers also saw that Nian was afraid from a little child wearing red so they started hanging red lanterns and red spring scrolls on windows and doors. They also used firecrackers to frighten Nian.
One thing I love when Chinese New Year comes is the "niangao" or what we call tikoy. I prefer ube flavoured one, and I always request mom to cook for us. Unfortunately, I don't know for any reason, we have not yet availed a single box of tikoy yet. I don't know if my Chinese New Year would be merrier again, just like what  happened from the past years... But still, Kung Hei Fat Choi Hans people! 
On the other hand, a lot of thanks to wikipedia
