Year of the Yang Earth Rat – Happy Chinese New Year


It’s countdown to the Chinese New Year and let me be the first one to say,
in Mandarin: “xin nian yu kuai, gong xi fa cai”;
in Cantonese: “sun nien fai lok, gung hay fat choy”; and
in Hokkien: “xin ni kuai leh, kiong hee huat chai”.

Of course, let me also greet you in Korean: “say hay boke-mahn he pah du say oh”.
