Spring Flower Fair - Chinese New Year Series (1)

As Chinese New Year (or Spring Festival) is less than a month away (falls on 7 Feb 2008), the preparation for this major festival can be felt all over town. At Sunway Pyramid, a Spring Flower Fair is held. Plants that are synonymous with Chinese New Year, specifically good luck bamboo, mandarin oranges and pussy willow are in abundance.

I love the Chinese New Year celebration. How about you? Have you started on your preparations?

I love our New Year! In Vietnamese, we call it Tet and I have begun thinking about preparations but have not gathered materials yet. But I will now as you have inspired me!

I love Chinese New Year too. Love going to Chinatown during this period. My preparation for Chinese New Year is spring cleaning at the moment, a task I hated

What pretty flowers. I especially adore the little bamboo plants.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
