Night Lions 夏威夷中国新年

A  L  O  H  A !
Honolulu Chinatown's 
Chinese New Year celebration-
There girls ROCKED












 Familiar faces mingle













Does your cat enjoy
chasing a laser's
red dot?











This Dragon is just as frantic
to chase the
 Pearl of Essence











 Of course,
 Dragon has many helpers.











 But even Dragons
leave the stage in time- 












The REAL Star is coming!















 The Daring Young Lion -
 Leaping from pole
 to pole!














 Not just thrilling
but blessing
the crowd















 True Athletes - 
Wonderful (dangerous!) Work
















 After-Image Remains














Merging with New Years Past,
and to come -










Blessed and Welcomed
a New Year Begins
in the morning!

Egads! The "Cute" giant dragon is hopping on 4 stilts, after eating 2 humans?! Stunning! Sake afterwards would be good.

Great post, Cloudia!! I loved the pictures of the lion dancers!! And of the dragon chasing the Pearl of Essence. It looks like you had a great time.

Cloudia our cats do, and even flashlights- but it's the bubbles that our pups love most! It's a barking good time! Thanks for sharing these photos again, the masks are fascinating!

Fun, colourful photos. I have made many a cat crazy(er) with a laser red dot.

Is your ebook available only for Kindle? I tried ordering it a week or so ago and it tells me that it's not compatible with my device (Kobo Arc).
