This is actually my 4th Chinese New Year far away from my home. Last year I had the incredible chance to have holidays in France at exactly the same moment as Chinese New Year, so I was able to go back to Hong Kong. But it's very rare that the two countries share the same holidays at this period. From France, I wish those who are celebrating CNY Kung Hay Fat Choi, good health, plenty of success and joy in the year of the Monkey to come!
My dear host family, Mark and Odile are now in Paris with me. I am so happy to see them again. I always feel very comfortable and happy being and talking with them. They so kindly brought some CNY decorations from Hong Kong and decorated the front door of the apartment!!
