Chinese New year at Marco Polo


The Snake is the intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily. They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time.


Contemplative and private, the Snake is not outwardly emotional. He can appear cunning and reticent and works very modestly in the business environment. The Snake will plot and scheme to make certain things turn out exactly as they want them to. They are not great communicators and can become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner.


Water Snakes are influential and insightful. They manage others well and tend to be good for organizations to utilize as staff. They are quite motivated and intellectual, very determined and resolute about success. They will have what they desire, despite the conclusion or outcome they generate because it is worth it to them to not only be recognized for their efforts, but to be rewarded as well. They are affectionate with their families and friends but do not show this side of their personality to colleagues or business partners.


Year of the Snake: 1905.1917.1929.1941.1953.1965.1977.1989.2001.2013.2025.2037.

A treat for the senses, “Yee Sang”, which is served during the Chinese New Year only and stands for prosperity. In the Cantonese dialect, it is referred to as the “fatt choi发财”. The word “choi” can also be taken to mean “luck.” “Yee Sang” may vary in taste, depending on the ingredients used. A good “Yee Sang” will have a balanced sweet, bitter, salty and spicy taste. These four tastes represent the different experiences one goes through in life.”
