Happy Chinese New Year!

Just wanted to wish all my readers a very happy Chinese New Year.

Jayne and I went to a special event at our local Chinese restaurant The Ruby last night (see pictures). As well as a delicious meal, we were entertained by the traditional dragon dance, which you can just about see going on in the second picture.

One thing we learned was that not only is the new year that began yesterday (lunar year 4705) the Year of the Pig, it is the Year of the Golden Pig - a very lucky year indeed!

Golden Pig years only happen once in six decades, and Chinese people believe it is a particularly auspicious year for a child to be born - so in Chinese communities across the world, a boom in marriages and births is expected in the coming months!

Whether or not you take such things seriously, I hope this year brings you everything you hope for, in your life and in your writing. Gung Hay Fat Choy!
