Happy New Year again. What I love about the Chinese New Year coming weeks after the regular new year is that if you have somehow already dropped your resolutions – to get fit, to watch your finances, to cook at home, whatever you planned… you can start again. Here’s to starting again! Here’s to New Years! Can we plan another in March?
