I have Chinese Malaysian friends and this is the greeting for Happy Chinese New Year in Malaysia.
I noticed mainland Chinese greet differently; perhaps they use different dialects.
I had a dinner at Ichiraku Restaurant (一楽) which is located in Yokohama Chinatown (the largest Chinatown in Japan) to celebrate Chinese New Year tonight.
We enjoyed delicious Chinese food with shaoxing rice wine♪
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Wish you good health, joy, wealth and prosperous year!
