DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL 2021
(Zongzi Food festival) 3 Day Holiday
Zongzi is a traditional Chinese dish made from glutinous rice, wrapped in vine leaves mixed and stuffed originally with nuts, red beans, fruits, developing to wider ranges of meats.
This holiday is generally a 3-day event where families would travel home.
Chinese.take.these.holidays seriously, mainly as the family is separated for 6months or more, and from far-flung provinces and cities.
Yet here in Shenzhen the hub of commerce and. business, we are from time to time experiencing flurries of Covid-19 cases.
primarily due to a seaport importing and exporting goods out of the country.
checks are adhered to rigidly, hence any cases arriving are quickly isolated, individuals and communities are instantly put under stringent checks, swab, blood, inoculations, masks enforced, and so on.
Predicted to hit this weekend, the spirits are not dampened, but alternative plans to celebrate are in order, restaurants. booked up Shopping Malls rise to the occasion, providing entertainment for all ages, go-carting, dancing, show performances, libraries, and free movies in special places, life goes on regardless but with awareness as importance, daily announcement updates and. information keeps the wheels of commerce, social traffic flowing
This Day the UK
The British Queen QE2 celebrated her 84th birthday, it was a conservative event due to current factors, but a success.
Happy Birthday Your Majesty!
