Huat ah!

There are plenty of things to look forward to every Chinese New Year − from cookies and mandarins to loud drums of the lion dance, the greatest thing about welcoming Chinese New Year is the reunion with loved ones. This is a time of the year for everyone to come together and celebrate the successes and memories built in the previous year and wish for a more auspicious year to come.
