Kung Hei Fat Choi

Year of the Dragon starts on January 23, 2012. Chinese New Year is known as Spring Festival in China. It is also celebrated outside China. Filipino-Chinese community in Manila celebrate the new year in Binondo.
Lucky Bamboo
I bought a Lucky Bamboo in Chinatown today. It symbolizes good fortune. It started during the Ching Dynasty. Only the Emperor has this breed of plant in his garden during that time. He gives it away as a reward to people who has accomplished several tasks for him.
Lucky Golden Pineapple
I also bought Golden pineapple for excellent good fortune and to bring wealth luck. It is also believed to bring abundance and wealth for business and career minded people. Happy Chinese New Year!! :)
