Back to CNY Main Page
Here are some of my personal reflections related to festival seasons, especially on Chinese New Year. There is also another page on creative and inspirational CNY wishes and messages page.
It is not where we spend your CNY, but WHO we spend it with.
I have not been to my old home for a few years. A friend ask if I miss the place. Nope, not really. Because I realized that the most important is not where we spend out time but WHO we spend it with. No matter how beautiful, luxurious or rich a place is, it is meaningless if we are not with people we truly care about.
No, it’s NOT okay
In my neighborhood, we have a few old folks whose grown children have migrated overseas. They remained behind. Please give them a call and go back to visit if possible. Because, I see what the grown kids do not see. They are so lonely. The house remains dark and cheerless during CNY- first is to save on electricity and secondly, no point of decorating if the kids are not coming back. A few stayed on their own and had to fend for themselves.
