The Chinese New Year of the Dragon started on Monday 23 January with celebrations throughout the large Chinese community in the Toronto area. I went to Pacific Mall to take in some of the local culture.
is huge, I mean really huge. And there are over 500 individually owned stores
selling anything and everything. Cell phones, computer parts, clothing,
shoes, Chinese medicine, Chinese DVDs, jewellery.... you name it, it's
for sale. (Most of the time legal, sometimes not so legal, as in the case of pirated movies for sale. Just ask the local RCMP.)
People born in the Year of the Dragon are said to be confident, hardworking and always strive to be at the top.
They are full of energy, determined and will inspire other people, dislike routine and are excited by new projects. They show
loyalty to friends, and are popular and fun-loving.
Are you a Dragon? Not me, I'm a Rooster. Kung hei fat choi!
