Kung Hei Fat Choi!
This week we kissed the rat good bye and moved on to the year of the ox!
Chinese New Year is fabulous because it's a three day holiday and most people enjoy the long weekend outta town. For mainland Chinese, it's a two week holiday or longer, and bzillions of them cram into trains to get home to see their family.
I slept. Drank sake and champagne. Sung kareoke until 6 AM. Isn't that what the ancients had in mind?
I can't find any good answer to exactly what the year of the ox means for us. We'll just have to decide that for ourselves.
