Kiong Hee Huat Tsai! Happy New year everybody!
Ok, ok, ok, so what if Chinese New year was celebrated last Sunday? The fact that Hong Kong’s New year Celebrations last until Feb 24 gives me a relatively legit excuse to post this somewhat late Chinese New year blog post doesn’t it? (I say yes! Say yes with me! heehee.)
Red is the color of prosperity for the Chinese, which explains the red lanterns, red ang paos, red dragons, and even red tikoy packaging. Red means good fortune and joy, and who wouldn’t want that for the rest of the year? I certainly would! Pile on some gold, and I’m sure ready to make my 2013 a blast!
A little after we took some shots, this cat decided to come and join us. In the story of the Chinese New year, the cat was tricked by the rat, which is why the Chinese Calendar doesn’t have a year of the Cat. Poor kitty!
The title by the way, is in Hokkien, the language of my great grand father who was pure Chinese. It means “I will go”. This New year, Gua be khi to greater heights, Gua be khi where my passion leads me. What about you, where will you go?
