Diary Dates 2: Chinese New Year

Yes, it is shortly to be the year of the snake on February 10th. What I like best is the wonderful Chinese tradition of drinking baijiu, the famous white liquor that can top 60% vol if you’re (un)lucky. If you go to a Chinese house to see in the New Year, when taking shots of baijiu, no matter how fiery, you are expected to empty your glass. Your glass will be immediately refilled after each toast in preparation for the next one. The best bit is when you start toasting Michelle Yeoh, who is the same age as Max, but a bit better looking.
