Let me resume my posts with greetings…
恭喜发财! Kung Xi Fa Chai!
That’s Lunar New Year greetings in Mandarin, and if you’re greeting a Cantonese (like Hongkongers): Kung Hei Fat Choi.
Both means the same, “wish you a prosperous New Year”, sort of.
After the greetings, it’s usually followed with Hong Bao Na Lai, which means “hand me my red envelope, please”. That’s descriptive of a gift, which usually is cash in a red envelop. It is usually told to more senior, or more well-off people, in the family or organizations.
Well, we’re 1 month down the Year of the Horse. I have been too occupied the past 3 months, I have tons of pics to write about.
Happy Chinese New Year to everyone!
