Going Red This Month

It's two more weeks to go to celebrate Chinese New Year. Red has become theme color in the Chinese community and also restaurants, coffee shops & shopping malls. Apart from red lantern, pineapple in red or yellow is also one of the favorite decoration items because it carries the close pronunciation in Cantonese and Hokkien dialect as "prosperity approaching" (旺来). In view of the busy modern life, to me, having 2 weeks to prepare for the new year celebration is consider "last minute". Anyway, while we indulge in the joyful celebration, let's not forget the unfortunates in our society and do share our brilliant moments with them.
