Cultural Perspectives Group today dressed up in red to celebrate the lunar new year. Falling on the 16th February, it is the first day of the Chinese lunar new year, marking a beginning of the year of dog. We all indulged in a variety of dumplings together with a number of signature Chinese dishes such as Kongpo Chicken and Sichuan Style Tofu.
