or Happy New Year!
In 2004 our family was considering a move to Hong Kong. My husband had created a business that a company in Hong Kong wanted to buy and have us live on site for two years during the transition.
One benefit to our trip and almost adventure was learning to appreciate the Chinese culture. I will be honest, my appreciation didn't come until after the deal was blown, I was back home in the US and I was able to go back to HK as a visitor and not someone looking to live there.
We have moved from the back, in a hard to see the stage spot to a primo spot. We have a perfect view of the stage, the dancers, the drums and they visit our tables first. The lions dance for us. Wiggle their tails. They bat their eye, and shimmy all around us collecting the red envelopes filled with $1.
Our family isn't Chinese but we have enriched our children's lives by providing them an opportunity to see and participate in other cultural celebrations. I am already on the books for 3 tables for next year. Care to join us?
