Happy Chinese New Year to all! May the New 2014 Year of the Horse bring about joy, good health, great wealth and prosperity.
After the hectic Spring Cleaning, shopping, and other preparations, finally it is time for us to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
Whether you are still shopping for New Year goodies such as cookies, sweet meat, arrowhead chips etc, or having reunion dinners with families at restaurants, steamboat at home or otherwise, it is a great time to celebrate and welcome the brand new year.
In the past, there were so many customs and traditions to observe- such as no wearing of black, no breaking of glassware, no throwing away of things on New Year's day itself, etc, how many of you still observes this?
For the unmarried, have fun receiving red packets and dodging questions during visitations. For the married ones with families - may this be a good time for all to bond and catch up with relatives all over the island. And for the young adults who are going for countdown, River Angpao, zoo to see baby horses parading around, watching movies, singing KTV or hang out - take good care when in crowds, and enjoy yourselves to the utmost!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
