Gong Xi Fa Cai(Mandarin) & Gong Hey Fat Choy

February 7, 2014

Welcome to new Nat Hi contributor, Michellee Phelps, Senior Project Manager (she’s still nice and polite—we’ll give her a few more weeks). Thanks Michelle for the pics and all.

My husband Will and I just recently moved here to Oahu a few weeks ago from Orange County, CA and were really excited to check out the Chinese New Year Celebration in Chinatown over the weekend. We had a lot of fun joining the community in watching the parade and checking out the street vendors. I am really looking forward to what this new year has in store for me since I was born during the Year of the Horse which is considered a lucky year, according to the Chinese.

If you were wondering, “Gong Xi Fa Cai” means “Happy New Year” in Mandarin while Gong Hey Fat Choy” is Cantonese. The New Year festivities are over, but here’s a link to other events in Honolulu’s Chinatown.
