Happy Chinese New Year 2018 to the Chinese and Chinese-descent UK peeps here

18
Found 14th Feb
The first day of Chinese New Year (which runs for 14 days) comes this Friday with reunion dinners already happening around the world.

I speak some Cantonese only so going to go with the few greetings I recall.
Gong Xi Fa Chai
Xin Nian Kuai Ler

May your households be always filled with food (or rice...)
May your river of finance never run dry
May your family ties grow tighter
May your relationships prosper

May this year be one of joy and laughter, rising above circumstances when needs must.

And may we all benefit from those darn elusive local-exclusive deals!

Happy New Year Chinese people, thanks for the 99p phone chargers


Does anyone actually use a 99p charger? The fear of dodgy certification, poor quality wiring and horror stories about small fires starting because of this have put me off any basic electronics the discount retailers!

The pound shop stuff is usually really good on the whole. There's an electrician guy on Youtube who tears them all apart and goes over them.

It could but not everyone here is Chinese and not everyone would care about the festivities.
Happy new year!

Hopefully you have some red envelopes headed your way
Happy new year in English is actualy closer to happy new year in Chinese as I was taught it as a kid

Kung he fatchoi (wrong spelling, that's how we pronounced it) Apparantely it means happy rich/prosperous year

That's what I was taught as a kid... Blame the ex hippy teachers that taught me! lol
Happy new year!.
