The Year of the Water Dragon - 2012

The year of the water dragon is here!
I feel good about water and hopefully this year would bring good tidings and fortune to many. In Chinese element theory, water produces wood, which signifies growth and is the natural element of the dragon. It personifies creativity at its best.  So if there's any elemental year I like the most, it is water.  Water dragon occurs just every 60 years, which is once in each one's life time. So how lucky is that?

Today we celebrated it with families of course.  We used to dine out at the finest.  But this year, we decided to cook at home. We tried to make it as healthy as possible for a year of good health and togetherness.  And of course the non-stop laughters and chats were always fresh and new. At the end of the gathering, we always have red envelopes to hand out to children and single family members.  A couple should have at least an even numbered amount of money on each red envelopes, 2 per recipient. The generous, the better fortune awaits.

May this lunar year bring good luck and fortune to all!
Xin Nian Kuai Le!!
