Kung Hei Fat Choi

On the eve of the Chinese New Year, the Dragon pauses mid-dance to scratch his itchy behind against a stack of chairs in Manang Terry’s Chicken Inato.

The Chinese believe that if the Dragon pays a visit on New Year’s Eve (January 28 for this year), the host is blessed with good luck.

The Dragon often visits Chinese establishments, dancing vigorously as red-clothed men and boys beat their drums in rhythm. This is known as the Lion Dance.

Welcome the Year of the Dog!
