Happy Chinese New Year

I am lucky that Chinese people celebrate their new year up to 15 days. Otherwise, it's too late for me now to say "GONG XI FA CAI" (a traditional Chinese new year's greeting or blessing, roughly translated, "Congratulations and be prosperous.")
Chinese people believe that oranges bring good luck at New Year. That's why in Singapore (and some other countries); people will bring oranges when visiting family/relatives or friends in Chinese New Year..
