GONG XI FAT CHOI!
Chinese New Year as known as Spring Festival is the festival for families to come together and wish each other peace and prosperity. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly clean the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for incoming good luck. 2018, the Chinese Year of the Earth dog is an opportunity for the Dog to consolidate his achievements and to renew his motivation. It is a time to put our common sense to work, as well as our experience. In the Dog year, the key to succeed is to stay still, there is no relying on instincts, it is a time to rely on the facts and reality. There are very important points to keep in mind for the incoming year. It is a time to focus on everything that has been created on years before, it is a year to build and improve.
