Happy Chap Goh Mei. Last day of Chinese new year.

Chinese New year with lion troupe

Happy Chap Goh Mei. Today is the 15th and final day of Chinese new year celebrations. It falls on the snow moon and this auspicious day is also our Chinese Valentine’s day.

Today was such a joyful day chasing lions and dragons with Chelsia Ng ๐Ÿค—

I’m so sad that the lunar new year celebrations have come to an end, but I do hope the year of the pig will be a whole year of celebrating happiness, success and love for us all.

And yes, we believe in magic and unicorns ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŒ•๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŽ‘๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ™

Chinese New year celebrating Jade Emperor’s birthday also known in Hokkien as Pai ti Kong.

This is the most important day for the Hokkiens during the lunar new year celebrations and it is one of my favourite festivals.

Traditionally a feast is laid out on the altar table for the Jade emperor to thank him for his protection and blessings. Offerings like gold paper are burnt to send to heaven and fireworks and firecrackers are set off at midnight.

Watch the video to see how we celebrate x

Wishing all my friends a happy Chinese New year of the auspicious pig.

The lunar new year is a day to remember our heritage.

4 years ago today was also the day I lost my mother. Time does heal but the loss still feels real.
