hoppy new year

February 3, 2011

Good morning my dears, and a very happy bunny year to you!

Chinese New Year is actually one of my favourite holidays because the celebratory mood in Singapore is always amazing…and contagious, even for foreigners. In fact, I spent all of yesterday mall-crawling with a dear friend and our Balkan boys, because they’d decided to participate in the traditional donning of bright colours by looking for “lucky” red briefs to wear – proof that you don’t need to be Chinese to have fun with this festival!

So even if you aren’t officially celebrating, consider this an open invitation to wear something cheerful today and make heartfelt wishes for the upcoming lunar year. Here’s to health, fortune and happiness for us all. Gong xi fa cai!
