The Chinese New Year festivities are upon us.
|Zhuhai Flower Festival|
It’s a special time to reconcile and let go of grudges.
Now is the time to feast on dumplings, tea, long noodles and oranges. It is also the time to clean the house thoroughly and to wear new clothes.
I would also suggest you make Chinese lanterns with your kids.

2012 is the Year of the Dragon.
The dragon symbol is associated to the emperor and to water. The dragon is not a predictable and tame animal. We can therefore expect surprises in the new year. We should also expect lots of water (let’s hope for no tsunamis)
To increase our luck in the new year, we should wear red and eat fish.
Now might be a good time to invest in a new umbrella.
