Today is the 1st day of the Rooster year according to the lunar calendar used by the Chinese. It is also a joyous occasion where blessings, in the form of red packets (or Ang Bao) are given from elders in the family to the young ones. There will usually be elaborated get-togethers among family and friends, enjoying each others’ company and a great spread of snacks and goodies.
Day 1 of Chinese New Year (CNY) has been great so far, was able to exchange good conversations with relatives who i have not met for a while; most of us are so engaged with work that we tend to disengage from the social parts of our lives except for FB postings which keep us updated on each others’ life events.
As there will be more visitations lined up this afternoon, i shall leave updates for later. Here’s wishing all who celebrates CNY as prosperous and joyous new year filled with good health and wealth!
