Happy Lunar New Year 2018!

Welcome to the Year of the Dog — denoting a spirit of playfulness, lightness and enthusiasm for taking risks and saying yes to an adventure. With Chinese New Year comes the advent of Spring (one that I’m sure you will agree has been long awaited this year!) It also brings us the opportunity to start the year right. Decluttering the home and a bit of Spring cleaning is a given this time of the year. Getting rid of the old unusable things and replacing them with new things that have purpose and meaning. It’s also a great time to redefine your goals for the coming year and visualise them in your mind’s eye.

Many of you will be celebrating with family and friends today. However, Chinese lunar new year celebrations last for 30 days, so there is a chance to enjoy the season well into the commencement of Spring. Aside from the festivities of vibrant colours, dragons, red envelopes and good wishes, one mustn’t forget the candy box to bring sweetness to one’s home. Here are some tips by Christine Gallary on personalising your own candy gift box this new year.

We hope this year brings you much happiness, and prosperity. Celebrates this 30 day festive season with us at Naturally Chinese starting today. Our auspicious Peking Duck will be available weekend and the rest of the month.  Since the ducks need to be prepared in advance, please book early in order to avoid disappointment.
