It is less than a week now to greet and welcome this new year of Horse, as it galloping fast to bring happiness, prosperity, good health and abundant of wealth to us all :)

So, how's your Chinese New Year preparation so far? Almost there?
For myself, I have to decorate my home and office too. Since I am also incharge
of Office Administration, I decorated my office doors with the prosperous symbolic ornaments.
Have a look here ... Hampers with cookies like pineapple tarts, arrowhead chips also known as 'ngaku',  almond nut cookies, cashew nut cookies, love letters etc


Horse paintings and horse ornaments are my bosses' favorites too :)


Oh yes, what is the colour of Chinese New Year? RED of course!!
It is believe to bring good luck ....
Therefore, I need to go to the banks and other outlets to collect the RED packets
to make 'angpau' for the company's employees, friends, relatives and to make lanterns for hanging too!

 Any variants of red are welcome! I love pink, maroon, Orange .........

Orange .... Yes ..... Oranges is a must. We need to bring oranges when we go visiting our families and friends' homes as a gesture of wishing them abundance of good luck and prosperity. The pronunciation for oranges in Cantonese is 'kam' which has similar sound as 'gold' too.  Imagine receiving gold .....ahem, ahem :D

My this Chinese New Year Check List almost done except I have not shop at my favorite outlet for
my Company Chinese New Year Gathering Luncheon outfit! Almost every year I will go to Kuala Lumpur City to shop for my Chinese New Year dress, simple and nice.... can wear during CNY
and also to work.

I must think fast, we are living in a fast moving world, suddenly my mind blink with the idea
"Eureka .... I have found it!" I can shop online. It is convenient and I can browse through just a click away ....

I remembered seeing the ads before on this online shopping, so I type Chinese New Year Collection. 
A variety of designers dresses, blouses, skirts with vibrant colors are available. I am surprised that it also carries my favorite brand "Colours" ! So 'tunggu apa lagi?' I must quickly order when my size,
design, and colors still available, right ?

I would like to wish all my readers, family and friends here ...
