I got this cute post card from my Chinese friend, Tina. This midnight, the world welcomes the Year of the Ox (my zodiac year), which "symbolizes strength gathers through unity, harmony, obedience, courage and hard slog."
We have round fruits to symbolize prosperity and tikoy (a chinese sticky rice delicacy, often served during Chinese new year) to strengthen family ties. Tikoy is served by slicing it to thin rectangles, dipping it in egg then frying it). This year we bought ube flavored tikoy. We also have some new good luck charms for the house.
Have a wonderful Year of the Ox!
