Chinese New Year

I woke up to the sight of dark gray skies and heavy rainfall. It has been so warm for the past few weeks and the sight of rain coupled with the smell of fresh air is welcoming and perfect to start of the day. Back home in Singapore, I heard the sun is shining high after days of gloomy weather.

Today marks the start of long weekends and first day of the Lunar New Year celebrations. According to the zodiac calendar, it is the year of rat and this has nothing significant except that I’m getting old! I remembered when I was a kid, I look forward to every Chinese new year celebrations. Now that I’ve grown, every of such festival seems just like another normal day. This would be my second time spending Lunar New Year away from home. For many of my colleague, it is one of their first to spend new year away from home.

To my friends and family back home, may I wish that you’ll have a happy and prosperous new year.
