Happy Chinese New Year

So when those festivities marketing type people go about marketing their festivities, they usually pick the prettiest, most unique entities to represent their particular event to the world. Same goes with Chinese New Year. It's usually a toss between the elegant dragon, the quaint cherry blossoms or the ponytailed brat with 18 pineapple tarts in his mouth.

But for us? It's all 'bout the mandarin orange. The ordinary, unacknowledged, unadorned fruit that will never make the cover of any travel brochure, but which will never be found absent at any family reunion.

Long live the orange. We feel ya, oh stringy one.
