Happy Lunar New Year!

新年快樂!恭喜發財!
Kung Hei Fat Choi
Hope you are having a great Chinese New Year holiday!

Other than a time of celebration and family reunion (and lots of food and snacks too!), one thing you’d notice is that Chinese will shower words of blessing upon one another.

Kung Hei Fat Choi is something you’d hear and say frequently and to many people, this blessing is about getting wealthy and prosperous 發財. Very often, this is associated with material wealth.

There is perhaps another way to look at it. The character 財 is actually made up of two characters:

貝: Which means valuable, treasured.
才: Which means talent, gift.

Put together, it literally means treasured talent.

So, allow us to wish that you and everyone at home (especially the children) discover and develop your talents and gifts such that these talents and gifts become a treasure and blessing to you all the days of your lives!
