    Happy Lunar New Year - The Year of the Monkey

    Dr. Young, Dr. Huang, and wonderful members,

    Happy Lunar New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai! (Wish you good fortune!)

    Gong Zhu Ni Men (Wish all of you):-

    Shen Ti Jian Kan (Good health)

    Lung Ma Jing Shen (Good spirit)

    Chu Ru Ping An (Live safely)

    Wan Shi Ru Yi (Every wish come true)

    Hopefully, the Year of the Monkey will be the best year for the people of Hong Kong and around the world since 1997. The jobless rate here has dropped from 8.7%, the highest since Sars outbreak, to 7.3% in the last quarter. The boom in prosperity can be seen in every sector of the economy!

    All the best wishes to all of you!

    Suzanne & Richard

    Suzanne,

    Happy Lunar New Year!!!
    Out here, we have huge Chinese New Year celebrations, because there is a large population. The cool thing is, the celebrations aren't just limited to the Chinese community.

    I always love watching the festivities.....I can only imagine what it must be like in Hong Kong.

    All the best!

    All of you, thank you!

    It's really cool to see Lunar New Year being celebrated in almost every city of the world!

    BTW, 'Kung Hei Fat Choi' (in putonghua is Gong Xi Fa Cai) means 'Wish you great Fortune'. Therefore, during Lunar New Year, the first thing we greet each other is 'Kung Hei Fat Choy' and then followed by 'Shen Ti Jian Kan', means wish you good health!
