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.

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!
