In about 6 hours time, we, Chinese will be celebrating the First Day (年初一) of Lunar New Year. Traditionally, most Chinese will be celebrating the eve of the Lunar New Year by having the reunion dinner (or meal) with family members and close friends.
This year, I will be missing my reunion dinner with my family for various reasons but I am still going back to my home town (Taiping Perak, Malaysia) tonight so that can still catch up with my family members on the First Day of Lunar New Year. By the way, Chinese New Year will be lasted for 15 days (from 10th Feb 2013).
Accordingly to the Chinese Zodiac, 2013 is the Year Of Snake (out of the 12 animals), each of us belong to one of the twelve animals. In any case, it doesn't really matter which year we were born, the important thing is to stay healthy, happy and be generous in giving out love!
I like to take this opportunity to wish all of you...
GONG XI FA CHAI！
Will see ya again soon.
