Once again, it’s time to decorate your home with the auspicious colours of Red! Bring out the colourful sweets and hang little red packets onto kumquat trees. Mostly, don’t forget to fill those red (lai see) packets with money to keep little ones happy (and some adults too).
If I could choose my Chinese zodiac animal – I would have opted for the ‘Goat’ – for their gentle, kind and mild-mannered characteristics. Since ancient times, Chinese people have been using its fleece to make writing brushes and its jackets for warmth. Their pure snow-white fur resembles precious white jade. This year celebrates the year of the goat 2015.
