Happy chinese new year!

Celebrate this Chinese New Year at SURA Korean Cuisine Restaurant in Vancouver with the most authentic Korean Royal cuisine for all the family!

This February 19th marks this year’s New Year (or Nónglì Xinnián) which falls on the first day of the first month of the Chinese calendar. This year also happens to be the year of the sheep. The sheep is ranked eighth in the series of Chinese zodiac animals, for the number “eight” in China is an auspicious one, symbolizing peace and prosperity. Fancy.

While enjoying awesome Korean feast, if you’re looking for a way to impress your friends on Chinese New Year, why not dabble in some basic greetings in two of China’s most popular languages — Mandarin and Cantonese? Even for those who don’t celebrate the holiday, learning basic greetings like “Hello” and “Happy New Year” in Mandarin and Cantonese can help you with the fear of embarrassing yourself!

Here are six basic greetings for Chinese New Year in Mandarin and Cantonese.

  • Happy New Year (Mandarin): pronounced sheen nian kwai luh
  • Happy New Year (Cantonese): pronounced san knee fy lock
  • Wishing You Great Happiness And Prosperity (Mandarin): pronounced gong zee fah chai
