Welcoming the Year of the Goat

admin Uncategorized

We celebrated the Chinese Lunar New Year by having a dinner on February 24, 2015. Chinese Consul General Mme Zhang and Vice Consul General Mr Qu were among the guests. The dinner was held at Restaurant Tien Tsin in Gothenburg and more than 50 members and theire guests took the opportunity to enjoy good company and delicious food and to celebrate the New Year.

According the Chinese Zodiac, this new year is the Year of the Goat. Goats are intensely inquisitive and intelligent, have good taste and are artistic, loving and generous. Although goats lack power of initiative, they have a lot of hidden willpower.

To get some indication of what this year will bring, the dinner was concluded by each of us receiving a fortune cookie.
