Gong Xi Fa Cai!

According to Chinese astrology, 2011 is the year of the Metal Rabbit. Gong Xi Fa Cai is Mandarin Chinese and means "wishing you prosperity in the coming year." When we lived in Singapore, Chinese New Year was a bigger deal than Christmas. It was a welcome break from North America's obsession that begins the day after Halloween and lasts for 55 days. I see dim sum in my immediate future.
