It’s the first day of the Lunar New Year. Happy New Year to all the people from cultures that celebrate this traditional festival! And to all Chinese around the world, Happy Chinese New Year!
I was having breakfast at the neighbourhood coffee shop last Sunday morning when I noticed the tiny figurine in the photo sitting in the middle of the table.
Since this is the Chinese New Year period, I suppose it’s Cai Shen Ye – the God of Fortune in the traditional Chinese pantheon.
Was this merely a handphone charm inadvertently left behind by another patron, or is the popular deity paying a visit to the mortal world?
At any rate, I lost no time in snapping a candid shot with my own handphone.
