Gong Xi Fa Chai

A slightly belated happy Chinese New Year and a happy birthday to you all. It is the seventh night of the celebrations which means it is the day we all turn a year older (not again!). But for me Chinese New Year has meant FIREWORKS. I have always loved the view from my apartment and it has been further improved each evening for the last 10 days with beautiful displays. I've just been sitting on the balcony watching bursts of colour punctuate the night sky, while whizzes and bangs compete with the mosque below. They just seem to get better and better. I'm not sure how the lantern festival on the 15th day will compete with what I've already seen. Happy Year of the Rat!
