新年快乐 Xīnnián kuàilè

Kung Hei Fat Choy too while we’re at it!

Chinese New Year always sends me straight back down memory lane, to my Year Beside Monkey. Fifteen years ago now, almost to the date, I arrived in Beijing and headed straight out to what I discovered was Nandaihe, in the southern end of the city area of Qinhuangdao. About all I knew of Qinhuangdao was that it was an ice free port. Little did I know what would be in store for me over the next twelve months.

What a year it was. So much growth and change and so many challenges faced front on.

That particular Year of the Monkey (also my zodiac year) was a fabulous one.

Here’s to a great Year of the Pig! There will be a dumpling meal soon to celebrate, I just know it!
