Can you believe that yet another year has passed? It's the Year of the Rooster, which leaves me a bit sad since the past year (Year of the Monkey) was my year. Another 11 more years until it comes around again!

I can understand the homesickness usually associated with this time of the year for Asian students away from home. A meal with friends is usually organised - usually a steamboat or a proper restaurant meal (which may have been out of our budgets the rest of the year!). My celebrations will take place this weekend, a much more convenient time, with a large meal and once again, checking out the festivities in Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square. A highlight ought to be the performance by the Chinese tenor Yu Qiang Dai, whom I just saw as the Unknown Prince in Turandot - he was fantastic! Anyway, I digress.

Gong Hay Fat Choy!

I miss Trafalgar Sqaure! It was so so so so busy, but I have fond memories =).

I hope you feel better from the homesickness, and Happy Year of The Rooster.
