Here’s How To Maximize Your Chances Of A Good Year

Call us superstitious, but when it comes to maximizing our chances of a good year, we’re all for it.

 

If you’re like us, here’re the Dos and Don’ts to observe during Chinese New Year to up our huat-o-meter.

AVOID BREAKING OBJECTS

This may result in broken relationships with your family.

AVOID DOING LAUNDRY

Some believe that washing your clothes on the first and second day of the lunar calendar will offend the God of Water, whose birthday falls on these days.

AVOID WASHING OR CUTTING HAIR

Doing either of these could take away your good luck in the coming year.

AVOID LENDING OR BORROWING MONEY

You won’t want to spend the year in debts.

AVOID SWEEPING AND TAKING OUT GARBAGE

Keep brooms hidden on the first day of the Lunar New Year! Using a broom is said to sweep away the good luck of the household.

AVOID EATING PORRIDGE

Comfort food yes, but refrain from eating it during the first few days of the new year. Porridge is once believed to be eaten only by poor people. It is thus bad omen.
