恭賀新禧! as it is in Chinese, or ‘Happy New Year!’ in English.
Yes, the 31st is the Chinese New Year, and we enter ‘the year of the horse’.
We don’t have many Chinese readers (China is one of the few nations on earth that SLN have never got into, according to our wordpress stats) but we’ve made the acquaintanace of a few ex-pats (exclusively Hong Kong residents). Anyway, tomorrow night, all things being equal, we’ll be doing a special ‘Chinese New Yar’ post in celebration of, and in support of, our friends in China, and friends from China.
We look forward to the day when China opens its doors to the internet, to SL and to SLN.
The family Keng will be out for dinner, in a local Chinese restaurant, tomorrow night, so maybe not a great evening for me to be around SL, but I do wish my friends a ‘Happy New Year of the Horse’ on the 31st.
In the meantime, here’s a few photos of one of out Chinese friends, Zhuo, out and about in SL.
