This February 8, 2016 is the Chinese New Year. It’s a national holiday in the Philippines and celebrated by both the Filipino Chinese Chinoy and the Filipino communities. I love to go to Chinatown during the Lunar New Year to see the dragons and lions dance in the streets and hear the firecrackers explode while they dance. It’s a good time to eat my favorite Chinese food at the popular eating places in Binondo.
