Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Happy Lunar New Year to everyone!

In the Philippines, Christmas is the big holiday when we all go out to meet with family and friends. There are lots of gatherings and reunions and many take extended holidays. It was only in recent years that CNY was officially celebrated with a public holiday.

For people of Chinese descent, CNY is the biggest holiday of the year. I remember when I was living in Singapore, people would take the entire week off to ensure they had enough time to visit family and friends.

Cheers to everyone celebrating and a prosperous new year to everyone!
