Happy Chinese New Year. With Snacks

It is the year of the pig. The new year will be full of misfortune, or so I heard.
Ventured to China town the other night for the best bowl of noodles ever. Ever. No photos though.
Here's a lovely picture. You can see prominent advertisements for both Sharks fin and birds nest. Both must haves for rich Thai Chinese.

Sharks fin soup is all over Bangkok. It's expensive, but there are certainly many people with piles of money lying around. A lot of these people are Chinese. Thai Chinese that is.
I sampled a couple treats. One was something new. I don't know the name but it more or less seems like a Chinses delicacy salad.

With: ginko nuts, cashews, dried shrimp, jujube, and roasted chilis.
