How are you Celebrating the Chinese New Year?

Payal Shah

Payal Shah – Founder of L’ Dezen Jewellery

“I am really looking forward to this year’s Chinese New Year. I will be going to New York, not only  for holidaying, but also to start building networks for my new business as well as my current one. It’s snowing there right now, so I’m really excited to get my snow boots out! I personally love New York in the winter. As soon as one lands, I feel like I am in the sets of some New York based TV show or film.

I also have a jewellery show at the end of Feb in NY – So will be working on prepping and meeting a few clients before the show. And after all of that, its New York – Which means – Lots of food, shows, nights out and unexpected experiences on a daily basis! On that note, I am definitely going to hit up China Town so I don’t miss my home too much! Kung Hai Fat Choi lovelies!” More information about L’Dezen here.

Sara Mush

Sara Mush ― Founder of Sara’s Henna

“For CNY I have decided to take a much needed break from henna events and catch up on my monthly dosage of nature inspiration; hiking, exploring outlying islands, camping in Cheung Sha for my birthday and in general just refueling! I will also be launching my exclusive limited edition V-day and CNY Sara’s Henna iPhone covers – which go on sale Sunday night on our Facebook page!”. Like Sara’s Henna Facebook page here.

Resham Moorjani ― Founder of Moor Designs 

“Festivals and holidays are the best time for families to reunite and spend quality time together. You spend days and nights with the ones you love, eat around the same table, and take out lots and lots of pictures! For Chinese New Year and Valentine’s day, I will be capturing those memories and as for scrapbooking, that never stops!” Check out Moor Designs here.

Muskaan Samtani

Muskan Samtani ― Co-Founder of KASH Events and Entertainment

“I’m all excited for the cultural indulgences once again. My calendar this weekend involves the dragon dances (outside Mira Hotel), parades in TST,  flower market visits & etc. Besides that, I am also looking forward to celebrating some special birthdays coming up this week involving friends and families. And if all that isn’t enough, there might be a Macau trip to top it off. However, holiday also meant a busy period for events which demands some balancing at work. Kash will be taking part in One Billion Rising this year on 14th February 2013 at Central Statue Square. We are proud to be part of this worthy cause and encourage everyone to come and join in at the Danceathon.” Check out details on the Danceathon here and KASH Events & Entertainment here.

  Natasha Sajnani

Natasha Sajnani ― Celebrity Make-Up Artist & Founder of Beauty Boudoir

“What could be better than a work with pleasure trip to Bangkok? I look forward to grooming staff members of one of Thailand’s hotel and honing their skills to maintain eloquent and long-lasting hairstyles and make-up. Of course, my trip to Thailand wouldn’t be complete without pampering myself with the greatest of massages, spas, and shopping indulges. To top it off, I’ll surely enjoy doing makeup for 4 year old cuties for a makeover themed party!” Get the latest make-up tips on Beauty Boudoir’s Facebook page here.

We will be asking people “How did you spend your last Valentine?” You can participate in our HK Weekly Buzz  by emailing us your answer together with a headshot picture and information about you and your better half.

Kannan Ashar

Having lived most of her life in Hong Kong, Kannan moved to Bombay, or as some call it, Mumbai, 7 years ago in the mindset to pursue her studies in fashion designing but fate had other plans and she went ahead with advertising as her major. Being a typical NRI, living in Bombay was one of the most challenging yet exciting parts of her life. After working within the lifestyle media in Bombay for 3 years, life brought her back to her first and only home, Hong Kong.
