|From Post-NU Life- from the 3rd party at the evening....|
Saturday evening, the night before Chinese New Year's Eve, ROCSAs of Northwestern University, Illinois Institute of Technology and University of Chicago jointly hosted a get-together dinner with 140 participants in Chinatown. Most of us, upon request, dressed something red and/or gold to highlight the feeling of celebration. That's why you can see such a bright photo above.
Stories continued. At the same night, I went to two Karaoke parties also in Chinatown- one with mostly Chinese IMC students/alums, the other with mostly Taiwanese IMC + tech students. Many songs mingled to form a colorful night of fun. Similarly, many emotions mixed to form a bizzard night.
Officially, it's Chinese New Year's Eve here in Evanston. I joined Leo, Daphne G., Daniel and Andrew for a dinner at a Japanese restaurant KUNI, and moved for some drinks at Andrew's. We also saw one Nip/Tuck, played Wii tennis and Wii bowling, and watched some Australia Open with Cindy's attendance. On the ride back to my place, Leo, Andrew and I passed the moment when the clock hit 12.
"Happy New Year, guys! It's official now," I said when I opened the door.
The second one without my family, down.
