A very warm welcome indeed to the 'Water Rabbit'. The sign of the rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace and prosperity in the Chinese culture.

The water element represents sensitivity, intuition & inner peace. Things will finally start to fall into place after a 2 year period of struggles and hardship.


We usher in the lunar new year this year on 22nd January and the celebrations lasts for 15 days, till 9th February.
