Preparing for Chinese New Year

The feast just keeps on coming and I am not complaining. We are celebrating Chinese New Year again this year and there will be a lot of food to eat and a lot of things to grateful for. I can’t remember when we first started celebrating it and why (apart from another reason to cook and eat yummy food) but I enjoy celebrating nonetheless. It is also a good time to sit down as a family and enjoy each others company.

We started cooking yesterday and I am tired from tidying the house but hopefully as I am writing this, the house is adequately clean still as we continue to cook the food ready for tonight. The Year of the Rooster has been okay and has been an eventful year for me and I hope the Year of the Dog will be even better and will bring more success and opportunities.

I hope you all have a wonderful and plentiful night, day or afternoon as the Chinese New Year arrives or has arrived in your country.

恭喜发财 / 恭喜發財 (Gōngxǐ fācái)
Happiness and prosperity!’

过年好 / 過年好 (Guònián hǎo)
‘Pass the New Year well!’
