The Dragon


"It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him."




In celebration of the new year of the dragon this year I attended the Auckland Lantern Festival.

With a wide array of beautiful lanterns and all sorts of food stalls it was a fun night.


There were some amazing lanterns around, being year of the dragon though meant there was more amazing dragons than usual.

It was a warm night in Auckland, so I could get away with a dress and linen blazer,
and with all the walking comfortable wedges were a must.




Have you done anything to celebrate the Chinese new year?
