HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR
GONG XI FA CAI
MAY THE DRAGON YEAR BRINGS GOOD HEALTH,
SAFETY AND PROSPERITY TO ALL OF US,
AND PEACE TO ALL MANKIND.
Not much decorations have been put up at our home this Chinese New Year, have been busy with works and other daily chaos. We have just put away our Christmas trees on the eve to make way for some Chinese New Year decorations. Lanterns are up few days earlier but the Dragon figurine is still very much lying on the table.
The Chinese believe that there should have some food on the dining table to welcome the brand new year, symbolizing the abundance of food throughout the year. Here are some of the goodies I placed on our dining table to attract the good chi to our family.
