Kong Xi Fatt Chai! Kong Hey Fatt Choy! Keong Hee Huat Chai! and Chuc Mung Nam Moi!…wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous Chinese New Year (and Vietnamese New Year) of the Snake. May the year 2013 of the water snake brings you and your family an abundance of happiness, good health, success and fortune!
This weekend Melbourne celebrated the year of the snake with over 40 stalls at the Crown Riverwalk with food and cultural performances – from Beijing opera to the all girls Lotus Flower Dragon Dance. But, the highlight for me was the sensational Chinese Soprano Shu-Cheen Yu who sang traditional Chinese folk songs to Ave Maria her all time favourite. I even had one of her CD – Lotus Moon from years back.
