    I saw on the news today that lots of Chinese would put off having a baby last year, planning for a birth this, the year of the Dragon; it is supposed to be very lucky. I have no doubt this is true. Sian was boon in the year of the Dragon and married me!:BigGrin: I was born in the year of the Dog. :Rofl1:

    Happy New Year.
    The Dragon is the mightiest of the Zodiac signs; lets hope for a good year.

    I was born in the year of the Rat.

    Hi Red Dragon, Gung Hoy Fat Choi to you all.
    We will be watching the New Year celebrations at China Town in Central London this coming Sunday, a very colorful and interesting occasion.

    Brisey & Pam.

    I thought that was Steve McGarrett's nemesis in the original Hawaii Five-0 :Rofl1:

    Happy New Year Steve and Family.

    Imagine the patronising going on tonight in Chinese restaurants.

    Regular English couple enter and bow to oriental couple and wish then New Year etc.

    All very nice.

    Big tip as it's Chinese New Year.

    The Chinese will be off after closing to their real party and in many cases couldn't give a flying whatsit about their English customers.
