NIKKI: This just had to happen!
After revisiting what I did last year [link] , I concurred with *daanton that I should do another similar salute for this Chinese new year as well. But little did I know what I'd be getting into this time around!
Since 2012 is being marked as the Year of the Dragon, why not....... a dragon? Sure....! But yours truly was going to be the canvas!
Yes, I'm once again wearing my special Mandarin dress that was gifted to me back in 2006, but do you notice I've unbuttoned it and slipped it off my shoulders and down my back?? Because *daanton's gotten Jonesy to paint a couple of tattoo-style Chinese dragons on my back!
How nice of him! And I think they look quite good...
And don't worry, Jonesy's using washable markers [link] so these fake tattoos will wash off in the shower!
And don't forget: if you, like me and my parents and other ethnic Chinese Canadians, are going to be cooking your special Chinese-style soup(s) for the New Year's celebratory dinner, don't forget to stock up on chicken broth! [link]
