Kung Si Fai Chai! Happy Chinese New Year!

This is such a fun holiday and do the Chinese know how to celebrate.
Every year I look forward to the Chinese New Year and I am not even Chinese.
I love the decorations and remember when my own tree was full of them.
Red Packets were given out to children and over dinners they would give out door prizes
for fun. It's always nice to get a little souvenir of a night out celebrating a new year with
new eyes.

This year is the year of the Rabbit and hopefully it will be a good year and people will
have a chance to nibble on goodness and stay out of trouble.

This is the time also to tell people all over the world to celebrate life as life is the best present
anyone can get, be it from the soil, or birth or a sprout from the ground.

Man was created to live in God's garden in peace and to share in its' bounty.

So A Lady's Life wishes All My Chinese Friends a Very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
May they have life joy and prosperity and above all else PEACE.

Hi Lady! Sorry for the absence...
Kung Hei Fat Choi!! Happy New Year 4708!!!

Well, it seems that Egypt is becoming a risky place to visit these days. So, let’s move and get to the other side of the Mediterranean: Côte d’Azur... Enjoy and have a great weekend!

I also enjoy the Chinese New Year and cherish the memories of the year I spent in China and got to celebrate the holiday in person with Chinese friends.
I hope the Year of the Rabbit brings you much happiness.

hi trotter ! How did I know you would spell it right lol
I was shocked the way people spell it here in English, cause in Singapore, they say it the way I spelled it and to my ear it doesn't sound right any other way. So stubbornly I wrote it my way lol
I'll always be Singaporean at heart. lol

Happy Saturday Lady!

As you know I work in DC so tomorrow in Chinatown they will be celebrating in the Heart of downtown.

My grandfather has passed on but was Chinese. If I had the money, I'd use it to track my ancestors! All my mom has is a photo of the two of them. She was a little girl sitting on his lap.

Love, China

Butterfly your grand father must have had many things to tell you.
I hope you had a chance to hear the stories.The old people are great. It is sad when they leave us and we have to walk alone on this planet.
