Zaneta’s favorite New Year’s dish is poon choi, a Cantonese dish that consists of various meats and seafoods with a few vegetables sprinkled in. The dish is heated and is significant during New Year’s as the work and complicated process that goes into cooking symbolizes unity and togetherness.

Since it is her first year on campus, this will also be the first year Zaneta will not be able to attend the large family gatherings for big meals and won’t be able to take the holiday’s opportunity to see relatives she rarely visits.

She does not celebrate on campus though, as her closer friends do not celebrate Lunar New Year, and she does not believe she has the resources for it.

“It [being far from home] feels like I’m missing out, and I just miss the food a lot,” Zaneta said. “I would like to see more Chinese food at Webb.”
