We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Year of the Golden Horse

30 January marked the first day of the Lunar New Year 2014. It's the Year of the Golden Horse up next! Here are a few pictures of my simple preparation for the celebration.

A simple flora arrangement that symbolises Spring, with a basket of oranges to signify prosperity and luck
Cookies freshly baked by Mum -- a must-have to entertain all the guests who comes along to visit

A closer look at this little Laughing Buddha -- he hands out a red packet (Hong Bao) to wish one and all
a Lucky and Smooth-sailing Year ahead
And the Golden Horse leads the way into a brand new prosperous year (picture taken at Chinatown)

Here's wishing you
(May the Year of the Horse bring good luck throughout, and make your dreams come true.)


  1. Happy New Year Val, hope you enjoyed all the festivities.

  2. Love the first photo. The yellow roses are beautiful with the red.

    Hope you had a great New Year’s holiday.
    Fox : )

  3. Gong Xi Fa Cai to you and your family!
