Post I Like – Happy Chinese New Year, Everyone!

Yes, I didn’t wished a happy new year on my blog when 2020 kicked off. I did wished few on my posts comments but didn’t wrote a post specifically about welcoming 2020.

And here I’m today, re-blogging a post by Kally Nat of MiddleMe about Chinese New Year!

And there’s good reason for it.

The simple explanation Kally Nat is telling us about how Chinese people welcome their new year, what they go through and what they look forward to, is really an amazing piece to read out today.

Enjoy this post by Kally Nat and be sure to follow her for more tips and tricks about your professional life and more 🙂
