Today is the Lunar New Year marking the start of the year of the Earth Dog and 15 days of celebration.  I would like to wish everyone who is celebrating a joyous new year filled with happiness, prosperity and good health! Gong Hei Fat Choy! Gong Xi Fa Cai! 新年快樂! 恭禧发财!  We will be observing our annual tradition of visiting the Buddhist temple to mark the new year.

The dog (狗, gǒu) is the eleventh sign in the 12 year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Those born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018 are born in the year of the dog.  You are friendly, smart, loyal and responsible. Your lucky numbers are 3, 4 and 9, and your lucky colors are green, red and purple.

This editorial features gorgeous Chinese actress Li BingBing as captured by Chen Man for Harper's Bazaar China's 24th Anniversary issue in a stunning concept of Poetry and Painting and Flaming Lips that juxtaposes traditional and modern glamour.

  7. Wow these editorials are so stunning. And they remind me and make me think of what is happening to the publishing industry so sad. I mean blogs are great but no blogger will ever create editorials like this. It is a special world that is sadly not going to exist it seems in the future.

    Hope you had a great weekend. The heatwave continued here unfortunately, so it was another fairly quiet and aircon filled weekend for us!
