Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Posted by on 26 January 2009

Year of the Bull

Malaysia enjoys yet another long weekend as it celebrates Chinese New Year (also known as Lunar New Year in other parts of the world). Officially, the holidays are on the 26th and 27th of January only but many businesses, particularly those that are Chinese-owned, are closed for an entire week.

Many employees have filed leave for a week or more. And everyone who lives in Malaysia — Chinese or non-Chinese, Malaysian or foreign — is enjoying the four-day holiday (weekend included) and taking the opportunity to go balik kampung, fly somewhere for a quick trip, take advantage of the Chinese New Year sales and buy an LCD flat screen TV (now down to RM1,699 for a 29-inch model!), tv mount completely optional, of course… or just doing nothing at all :)

Gong Xi Fa Cai to everyone or, if you prefer to say it in Cantonese, Kung Hei Fatt Choy!
