Gong Xi Fa Cai, Gong Hei Fatt Choy, Xin Nian Kuai Le or just a simple Happy Chinese New Year

Having celebrated literally every Chinese New Year with the family and in Malaysia, this year is a little different.

For one; I am working because Australia doesn't recognise it as a public holiday. I mean with the growing Chinese population and a Chinese Finance Minister in the cabinet, lets hope this changes in the future.


For two, there has been no over indulging in food and gambling.


Gosh almost makes me feel like an extremely old fart.

In any case, to all those celebrating Chinese New Year, eat heaps, have heaps of fun and may you achieve all your wildest dreams.

Just in case you had no idea why the picture above; "The footprints are meant to represent the journey to whatever you hope for"

I like that. Instead of the usual red-and-gold pictures, you got us looking at footprints on a sandy beach instead.

And "the journey to whatever you hope for"? Probably that sandy beach itself! LOL
