Basically, we cook together to have a big Chinese dinner.

It used to be we'd have some friends. But because of our age and moving from a house to an apartment we don't have that much space. So it’s just family.

With my family. On New Year's Eve we're together. Maybe dinner.

(In Taiwan), it's colourful. All the people celebrate.

Here, not so much.

I like seeing all my friends, celebrating and having a happy day.

When we were young in Hong Kong we had a big family. But we're all separate now. More of my family now lives in the U.S. And some are living in Toronto.

In China there would be some parties. Most people come back home.

Here it's totally different.

There aren't as many friends or family members.

With my family. Like, in a Christian society it's about family and Christmas. With our Lunar New Year it's about family as well.

We usually have a large meal of 10 courses. There's always a fish dish. And a chicken dish. A duck dish. It's the traditional Chinese menu.

We go out, though. Nobody cooks anymore.
