2016 New Year!

Wednesday, February 10, 2016
A little note from us! Happy Chinese New Year, it was spent enjoying the long five day holiday away from the stresses of work. We both spent it with our families and loved it, not going to lie, we're a bit bummed out that we have to return to work tomorrow but at least it's a short week for us.

This year is the year of the Monkey, but unfortunately Hong Kong started off the new year to bad spirits with the Mong Kok riots, a conflicting tale for another time. As I've only been in Hong Kong for a few years now, this was my third Chinese New Year, previously I didn't hype up this holiday as much as it deserved (the atmosphere isn't as great in the UK). But honestly? It is part of my culture and heritage and even though there is a lot of faff to it, it's also the best time because families unite and spend valuable time together.

Here's to the year ahead!
