Celebrating Chinese New Year

The Year of the Tiger

On Sunday Alex Maskey and I joined with hundreds of other citizens in attending the Chinese New Year celebrations in St George's Market. I knew this was an impressive venue for a colourful, family celebrations after being at the POBAL event a few months ago.

Alex, by now, is a veteran of the Chinese community's celebrations, it was evident from how many people came over to welcome him and shake his hand, just how well got he is amongst out local Chinese population.

The event itself was great, the sights, the sounds and the smells were all outstanding and I particularly enjoyed the onstage entertainment.

Already we're looking forward to next year!!
