Chinese newyearIt’s time to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. Said to be the mightiest of the Chinese Zodiac symbols, anyone born under this sign is likely to be ambitious, successful and hard-working in nature. Helping to welcome the year in style last week were the good folks at Park Royal’s Osaka food market. A special VIP guest reception was held that featured food tours, arts and crafts displays and traditional lion dancing. Those in attendance were also treated to a wide selection of delicious treats and special gift bags.
