As an American given the opportunity to work in Hong Kong, celebrating the Chinese New Year is a huge eye opener. The excitement is in the air as I listen to conversations in the UPS Hong Kong office. For the Hong Kongers, it is a time to be home with the family. Most of my colleagues have their families in Hong Kong, but there are others whose families are in other parts of Asia and they will make the special trip back home.
As a foreigner who is far away from home, I can’t help but to think about my family. At least, I spent time with them when I visited them during the Christmas holidays.
