Picture Wednesday – Happy Chinese New Year!


The Lunar New Year celebrations have already started across Asia to welcome the year of the goat.

Here is  the controversy. The Chinese term can refer to a sheep, a goat, a ram or an antelope. In fact, some believe it may refer to a sheep.

However it may be, this is a family festival and Chinese state media has said that over 40 billion passenger trips will be made by plain, train and car over the 40-day period it lasts for. The celebrations will be held in London next Sunday, so expect some pictures from there!

I took the picture below in Chinatown this week. It was such a disappointment when we saw the guy taking the outfit off to have a break! Then, Panda came back.

  1. One of my clients celebrates this annually by taking us all out for a Chinese lunch. We went on Tuesday. Ate too much and had a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing your pics on Sunday.
