It was rather a grand weekend, with celebrations spanning across the globe! The weekend already had a good start, with the Second Honeymoon - making sure all the couples had an extra bit more of cupid time. Then we had the Mardi Gras Festival in Georgia... a great event that's full of exciting things to do and watch. This celebration is all about fun, music and food. Just the kind of things that I like:)

And to add to this, was the
Chinese New Year... Gong Xi fa Cai! This time, it is really special. It's the Year of the Golden Pig, something the Chinese consider really auspicious as the year is believed to bring in loads of riches! What a great way to bring in smiles, happiness and contentment.

Over the years the Chinese New Year has evolved into a festival that is celebrated with a lot of pomp and splendor. It is an ocassion when people of Chinese origin all over the globe with strings attached to their homeland, live the spirit of the festival in full swing.
