Chinese New Year 2021 – Year of the Ox

Chinese New Year

Ryan from West Chester sent us this note after he attended one of Chef Poon’s CNY events:

“The weather was cooperative, the festival was entertaining, and the food was spectacular. But Chef Joe’s affability and earnest engagement of the patrons stole the show.  Of course from my perspective, and the perspective  of my date, the opportunity to spend some moments with Chef Joe simply in his element out and about in Chinatown, treating us both as if we were age old friends despite the fact that we proved relative strangers, served as the most superlative facet of the event.  The experience reinforced the premise of which we were both already aware, that Chef Joseph Poon serves as not only a credit to the culinary community and Chinatown particularly, but more broadly as an irreplaceable asset and cultural ambassador to the city itself.”      

Thanks, Ryan.  We agree!

Year of the Metal Ox (2021)
Starting from February 11th 2021 and lasting until January 30th, 2021. It will be a Metal Ox year. In 2022, a year of the Tiger (Water Tiger) will follow.The faithful character of people with Chinese zodiac Ox sign helps them to get trust from the leaders and friends. They also have talents to be leaders and are good at managing, but maybe a little strict. Oxen like routines and respect traditional ideas, doing things step by step. The persistence makes most of them become tireless workers.

They are likely to be self-made and insist that everyone should do their part while not putting up barriers to others’ work. Although being a little conservative, Oxen always try to keep just and fair, no matter in life or at work, and never let people down. Read more
