Asian Report for 15 February 2011 - Chinese New Year

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:31 pm on 15 February 2011

Gung Hei Fat Choy! Chinese New Year Started on February 3rd, but festivities last for 15 days! We are in the year of the Rabbit. People born in the year of the Rabbit, are said to very fortunate, softly spoken and able to find happiness and contentment. Sound like you? If you're born this year, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, you're a Rabbit, the fourth animal in the 12-Year Cycle of the Chinese Zodiac. Jason Moon has visited members of the Blockhouse Bay Chinese Community to find out how Chinese New Year has changed for them since moving to New Zealand.
