GRACEFULLY INTO THE YEAR-OF-THE-OX!










REMINISCENTING THE YOUNGER DAYS

During childhood days, elders in the family were always very encouraging in preparing the new year. They used to say: "Be careful at the end of the year and pay more attention to what you do."






Our living mode becomes more complicated with extra precautions to undertake in our steps forward towards "The Year-of-The-Ox." What happened in the "Year-of-The-Rat" have not only changed our lives but also leaves a heavy mark in the hearts of many.

From the big cities to the villages, governmental bodies and local communities are closely monitoring the shifts in the current pandemic with advocating “Stay where you are to this Chinese New Year." While heeding their safety advices by staying-in, whiwe are also contributing to the collective efforts in containing the deadly virus.

"Because of restrictions, we cannot travel, thus we are unable to get back home for the reunions!" Similar to the story in the Chinese novel - “Besieged City” by Qian Zhongshu (Chinese Author) where those who want to come in cannot enter, and those who want to leave cannot get out except this time, we are besieged by the corona virus pandemic.

One of the ideals is to spend the money of the intended travels by selecting a gift to buy for yourself, family and friends.

Turn the new year into a "bullish" new world!
