2017 | The Year of the Yin Red Fire Chicken

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year 2017 to everyone from wonder | wander | women!

Being part Chinese and mostly Asian, we celebrate Chinese New Year with lots of fanfare and food.

Last year was the year of the Fire Monkey and many of us were tested and challenged by the naughty antics of this wily creature.

The year of the Yin Red Fire Rooster is the Year of Money, symbolized by seven Chinese characteristics of punctuality and prosperity.

the earth from above

Being insatiable tourists, the wonder | wander | women love taking pictures, but some of the best photo opportunities come at thousands of feet above ground level.

post holiday blahs

wonder | wander | women love the way rain curtains down on us back in Negros Island.

Its flatness lends itself to some spectacular lightning shows and thunderstorms. 

The Philippines was hit by quite a big storm on Christmas day and since then the hush of raindrops on the leaves and the swoosh of branches lashing in the wind have been our constant companions.

holidays with friends

This year in London was all about partying with friends! Having family a Skype or Facebook call away eases some of the loneliness of living overseas, but having friends living in the same city means that the holidays don't have to be lonely at all.
