Gung hay fat choy-2012 Year of the Dragon

  • Jan 23, 2012 · 11:00 AM
  • Golden Unicorn Restaurant

Happy New Year! Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with friends in our annual Chinese New Year dimsum gathering. 麒麟金閣 Golden Unicorn is at the corner of Catherine St and East Broadway. We'll split the bill for dim sum, usually comes out to $15-20. Golden Unicorn is on the second and third floor. We'll try to get a table/tables on the third floor. For newcomers, we'll put up a meetup sign. After dimsum, we'll take a stroll to enjoy some of festivities going on in Chinatown.

Year of the Dragon

Dragon years are lucky for anyone thinking of starting a business or initiating a new project of any sort because money is easier to come by for everyone, whether it’s earned, borrowed or received as a gift. Consequently we can expect the economic downturn to ease up a bit in the coming year. Fortunes can be made but they can also be lost: Keep in mind like all good things, the Year of the Dragon will come to an end and you will be held accountable for unreasonable extravagances.

    Will, sorry to hear that. The next thing you, and others in similar situation, can do is go out with your colleagues for a festive CNY lunch.

    Raymond Tsui, I'll put a meetup sign on the table. Look for us on the third floor first.

    Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. This is the 7th time I'm hosting the event on New Year's Day. For the Chinese, Chinese New Year is the most important holiday of the year. Employers should respect that. Yes, how you celebrate is a personal decision. I made mine. For the mandarin speakers who would like to celebrate New Year's Day with me after work, you are welcomed to join me for a vegetarian dinner. Post here if you are interested and I'll send you details.

    Yes, a bit tough to make it 11:00 AM on a weekday. Any chance to have another event during weekend or after work?

    I'm taking the day off to celebrate. In the past, those who couldn't take the time out took an extended lunch break.
