Kung Hei Fat Choi!

... means Congratulations and Be Prosperous in Cantonese. Often mistaken as Happy New Year greeting.

Tonight, all the festivities and celebrations will be observed by the Chinese community. Ang-pao's will be given to kids and the tables will be full of mandarin oranges or quiat-quiat to symbolizes abundance and prosperity. Fireworks and dragon dances will be displayed on the streets to ward off bad spirits of the previous year and attract the good fortune of the Year of the Ox (Ji Chou). For this year, Lucky number will be the flying star No. 9.

So to my dear friends, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
