Happy New Year!
Gong Xi Fatt Chai.
Wendy hosted an afternoon at the Crown Prince in honour of Chinese New Year, and we enjoyed some the best dim sum I ever tasted.
I even tried steamed chicken feet, which is supposed to be incredibly nourishing for your joints. Our champagne glasses always seemed to magically refill before they were even half-empty. Delicious samplings included suckling pig, steamed pork buns, shrimp dumplings, deep fried sesame/sweet potato, sticky rice in lotus leaf. Even though the morsels were bite-sized, the feast was filling.
Our hostess also brought our horoscopes. 2015 is a fulfilling year for oxes such as me. "Your tenacity and doggedness to get things done will work in your favour. Business will prosper. The Year of the Green Wood Sheep will be excellent in terms of money. Relationships for the Ox zodiac sign will flourish. Sex will be more important than real love. Travel for fun and work is in the cards this year. You might be affected by stress and mental ailments. Be sure to take precautions. 2015 foretells that you will be the go-between for all conflicts between family members."
