Tonight, we welcome the Year of the Wooden Sheep with love, hope and loads of excitement.
2) Out with the Old, In with the New.
Related to the first tip, Master Hanz said it would be good to replace old stuff (i.e. chipped plates, broken glasses or cups, worn-out clothes) with new wares to attract prosperity.
3) Prepare the Dining Table.
Master Hanz said it would be good to have twelve kinds of fruits on the dining table. Some suggestions are grapes (considered food of Royalty), bananas (for better family relations), lemon
(wipe off negative energy), pears (to attract money), pineapple (to attract wealth and luck) among others. He also suggested tikoy, noodles and chicken (minus the head and feet).
To drive away negative energy, it would also be good to open the windows and doors by midnight. Master Hanz said it would also be good to make lots of noise through loud music, cheers and the dragon dance, if possible.
5) And finally,
Master Hanz reminds us of some age-old tips of attracting luck: work hard, keep things clean, do good to others and live a meaningful life.
Kung Hei Fat Choy to each and everyone! Happy 2015!
