As we bid farewell to year of the rat we usher in the year of the OX which starts from the first day that is 26th of January.  It is the most auspicious day in the Chinese calendar .This “Gong xi Fa Cai” celebration traditionally lasts 15 days

Many Chinese will return home or Balik Kampong to meet together with their family members and most importantly to be home in time for a family reunion dinner on the eve of the chinese new year.

With the economic slow down, many are not sure if it will be really happy New Year. Children will run around happily with bright red packets of lai see, lucky money . Working adults should have no worries if they continue to receive the year-end bonus and in some cases bonuses,represent two or three months’pay.

Anyway I sincerely wish everyone a happy new year and let this Chinese new year of Ox be a start to all things wonderful. May you all enjoy good health and a prosperous year. Do have a nice holiday.

Gong xi Fa Cai,Kong Hei Fatt Choy and a Happy New Year

  1. I also wish you a happy new year. While we celebrate let us do our little bit to help a lady.

    Let us ask help for this lady so that she can also dream her dreams.

    Seeking your prayer for someone in real need of it.
