Gong Xi … Gong Xi … Happy Chinese New Year!!
To everyone who celebrates Chinese New Year, … GONG XI … GONG XI!!
May you have a new year filled with joy, good health, and of course thankfulness for everything that you have been blessed with.
As for us here in Jakarta, Chinese New Year is not celebrated as ‘seriously’ as back in Singapore.
(The last time I celebrated Chinese New Year in Jakarta was like, … 20 years ago, may be?)
And so frankly, I do miss the whole festive feel.
I miss the usual CNY songs playing at malls and supermarkets. The decorations. The CNY events held everywhere else.
Here’s a plus point.
We get to spend time with our family here.
Which is a privilege that we don’t quite have back in Singapore.
(Because really, Chinese New Year IS about getting together with families, yes?)
Here’s one clip that I’ve been playing again and again at home … just so that we get to feel more Chinese New Year-sy here =)
Enjoy the song!
