Happy Chinese New Year and welcome to the Year of the Snake! The Water Snake celebrated its first day in abrupt fashion, blinding sleet and snow arrived in North London yesterday evening (I hear some parts of London were virtually snowless?), nice one. I’ve been pretty much stuffing myself with boxes of sour Mandarins and sumptuous pork crackling gifted by friendly Chinese neighbours. I then had a go at Chinese calligraphy, it has taken me 5 attempts to perfect the scribble effect of both Chinese Traditional characters ‘Fortune’ and ‘Snake’, with the help of my aged Chinese ink and brush. It doesn’t look that bad.
Once again, Happy Chinese New Year, let the Water Snake bring mobility, tranquility and prosperous future.
