Chinese new year comes earlier this year than the last. It’s good bye to the year of the rat and welcome the 2nd animal on the Chinese Zodiac, the hardworking Ox. Lets hope the bovine power will bring a bullish year ahead for many. Nevertheless, despite the downturn, CNY is still a period of festive joy, performances, not to mention family reunions with family and distant relatives.
Many wishes to all the Chinese celebrating 2009 with the year of the Ox, Gong Xi Fa Cai.
