Walked over to Chinatown today to check out the sights & sounds. Good times! Didn’t realize how close it is to my place (only 1.4 miles according to Google Maps.) Most of the festivities were held last week, but I had some time to check it out today.
First I stumbled into Maunakea Marketplace. Cool place. It was a maze of gift shops with a food court and an open market. There were crabs, shrimp, tilapia, and vegetables for sale.
Then I made my way to the Chinatown Cultural Plaza. There was a buzz of activity, and it was kinda crowded. There were food vendors, souvenir stands, t-shirts, firecrackers, and different Dragon Dances going on.
Got my gau. Happy Chinese New Year….
