So, is the world coming to an end soon [that's 1.00pm Malaysian time btw as Peru (where the Mayans are from) will only be 21 December 2012]??? :p
Whatever it is, today is a rather big day for the Chinese around the world where Winter Solstice Festival is celebrated. Reunion dinner where the entire family gathers is a must and of course the partake of tong yuen (glutinous rice balls) which will ermmm make us one year older. And so, I'm officially one year older already!
More on this here, here and here.
Wishing everyone a blessed Dong Zhi filled with peace, harmony and joy!
