Time flies!

How time flies!! It seems like yesterday when everyone is sending his wishes on new year. Now i still can’t realise that chinese new year is next week. Reached mid february already!! One month already off! As usual, there will be the haphazard cracking of fireworks, and the greetings to elders, and food… Colleagues will be asking for gato la cire, pawncrackers, and gato cravate. I once chatted with a friend in Montreal about events organised for the chinese new year. It seems that it is only here in Mauritius and (eventually china and the rest) that this event is quite lively. I think that in western countries where mauritians have settled, residents could hardly make a say of their religious festivities and beliefs, let alone a private gathering. So is there a better place than home??
