Chinese New Year is a major festival celebrated worldwide, with traditions dating back over 3,000 years ago. Passing down from one generation to the next, these traditions have evolved over time. In a lively dialogue between celebrity influencer Richard Juan and Feng Shui Master Kelvin Poon, who studied after the famous Master Peter So Man-fung, Harbour City shines a new light on this festival with eight lucky things to do:
1. *Have a Lucky Meal:* "Lo Hei" is made of ingredients like salmon and abalone which in Cantonese sound like prosperity, and everyone sticks their chopsticks in to toss everything up.
2. *Wear a Dash of Red:* From red outfits to red lipsticks, adding a dash of red is a must for CNY.
3. *Wear Red Inside Too:* Wearing red underneath, from socks to underwear, is one of CNY's best-kept lucky secrets!
4. *Put Fresh Fruits at Home:* Fresh fruits boost liveliness for the home and the body, even better if they are red.
5. *Eat Sweet Things:* Sweeten and brighten up your life with colourful candies -- they make great gifts too.
6. *Give Out Lai-see:* Lucky money in a red packet -- everyone's favourite CNY tradition explained.
7. *Beautify Your Space:* Clearing up spaces at work and at home increases the flow of energy, and decorating them with fresh flowers and Fai Chun can elevate that further.
8. *Share a Bowl of Tong Yuan:* "Tong Yuan" is a signature dessert to enjoy with family and loved ones during CNY, a time of sharing joy and reunion.
