Chinese New YearHaGong Xi Fa Ca! That’s the traditional Chinese New Year greeting that means “wishing you prosperity” in Mandarin. Happy New Year !  Today begins the Chinese New Year and the year of the Dragon. The dragon is perceived as a mystical and auspicious creature in Chinese cultures and this year is expected to bring prosperity and transformational change.You need not be of Chinese descent to begin a positive approach at this time of their celebration which extends through the next two weeks.

     We are not the experts on Chinese culture for sure ...ask Loreena Yeo who knows first hand all the traditions....we are just learning as we have clients and friends who are celebrating this holiday.  One of the great things about southeastern Wisconsin is that it has such a great mix of cultures and people who take pride in their native land, tongue, cooking, traditions. They are happy to share them with you ....and we are anxious to learn.  We have the Milwaukee Chinese Community Culture Center (MCCC) and this Chinese Culture Center offers a variety of cultural and educational programs.  The New Year's party was held on Sunday, January 21st  at the Mitchell Park Domes with a fabulous display of art, food, dance....all things Chinese and wonderfully colorful and exciting to watch, delicious to taste and educational to learn more about the Chinese culture.

           If this little bit of eye candy has peaked your appetite for more exposure and education into this fascinating culture, you may contat the MCCC for more information on programs, events and volunteer opportunities. 

Dance    We love Wisconsin ....and we are happy to show you all that we have to offer everyone who chooses, as we have to make it their home for a lifetime....HaGong Xi Fa Ca!

Had a customer who celebrated Chinese New Year. He owned a sushi restaurant here in Destin. We got invited to the restaurant to celebrate the holiday. Wow! the food was terrific and never ending. Celebration started about midnight and we finally left about 3 AM. Very gracious Hosts.

The whole Midwest is a bigger melting pot than people suspect, Sally.  Good to see you embracing it ... and passing on opportunities for all of us to educate ourselves about the wonderful Chinese people and culture ...

It's a great day to celebrate, especially if you are in an Asian country. My knowledge about the chinese culture is not that great, but I do what I can to pass it along to my son.

Thanks for mentioning me. It's an honor.
