Year of the Rabbit
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
May fortune, wealth and good health be with you!
The Lunar New Year is almost here and most Chinese in Malaysia and elsewhere will celebrate the occasion tomorrow by offering mandarin oranges or red envelopes stuffed with cash to family members especially children and close friends.
The 12-year cycle of the Chinese calendar returns to the Year of the Rabbit and people expect good fortune throughout the year.
Chinese tradition views rabbits as social, sensitive creatures and their homes and families are important to them. They symbolise beauty, composure and wealth.
