Gong Xi Fa Cai and Happy Birthday!

Today is Chinese New Year Eve, a day for family reunions.
Tomorrow, February 3rd, 2011 is Chinese New Year Day, the first day first month of the lunar calendar.
The day after, February 4th, 2011 is Lichun, the first day of spring according to solar calendar.

Here, in Malaysia, we are have been having unusually cool temperatures in the northern states since Dec 2010 and experiencing a long rainy spell. Some of the southern states in Peninsular Malaysia e.g. Johor; were flooded a few days ago and water had gone into people's homes. Usually, it is a hot and dry season during this time. I hope the weather will change for the better soon.

To everyone,
Kung Hei Fatt Choy and Happy Holidays!
May you have a safe journey home.
May you have a wonderful time with family, friends and loved ones.
May you receive lots of blessings from heaven and lots of 'Ang Pow' red packets !

To my dear friend HC Gooi aka Mrs Goh whose English birthday falls on Chinese New Year Day,
Wishing you the best of health, wealth and happiness because,
You are special!
