My new Orchid

I went to the CNY Chinatown Flower festival on Sunday and got this new orchid plant from there. It is customary for the Chinese to decorate their homes with bright-coloured plants for Chinese New Year, a tradition which symbolises rebirth, growth, happiness, good fortune and prosperity, among others. The Orchid represents love, luxury, beauty, strength and refinement, virility and long life. Hopefully this year of the Rabbit will have a lot of these things in store for me 🙂
