Once again, it’s time of the year for house visiting with your folks during Lunar New Year and you are expected by your elders to be dressed in auspicious colours no less. Are you tired with the usual suspects of red, orange and pink? According to the traditional Chinese masters, 2015 is the Year of the Wood Ram.
