Gong Xi Fa Cai : Happy New YearFebruary 5, 2016
恭禧發財. Gong Xi Fa Cai. Kung Hei Fat Choi. Chúc Mừng Năm Mới.
Whatever your language, Happy New Year.
The lunar new year starts at the second new moon after the (northern hemisphere) Winter Solstice. Celebrated by people of Chinese origin the world over, each lunar year is attributed to a sign of the zodiac.
In the 12 year cycle of the Chinese astrological calendar, 2016 is a Year of the Monkey.
The Wu Xing (Five Elements) sign of the Monkey is Jin (metal), which indicates brilliance and perseverance. Chinese zodiac analysts say that people born in a year of the Monkey have business traits of intelligence, eloquence, adaptability, flexibility. Their personal traits are: brilliance, independence, honesty, cordiality and positivity. Monkeys are reputedly problem-solvers, strong leaders and highly sociable.
Throughout China and in Chinese communities around the globe, celebrations with dragons, sea-lions, lanterns and firecrackers will celebrate the new year. Many businesses close for extended periods, and many employees in the Greater China region take annual leave and visit families at ancestral homes.
In the Chinatowns of major cities across the world, there will be activities in which the whole family can watch or participate. For details of activities in Hong Kong or Sydney, visit: discoverhongkong.com or sydneychinesenewyear.com.

From Our Clients
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
Since 2003, Digital Tsunami has collaborated with Personal Broadband Australia to deliver many online solutions, including the latest www.pba.com.au site.
Central to the development process is Digital Tsunami's thorough understanding of the project needs, clear and constant communication, and creative, innovative and meticulous approach to delivering solutions.
The results are clean, intuitive, refined and cohesive, with rapidly loading pages and extremely high usability.
The benefit to PBA of this long-term relationship has been the highly effective way in which Digital Tsunami has implemented and enhanced my vision on every project.
.. organised, meticulously detailed and yet flexible - always serving client needs to the highest standards. From a client perspective, you can expect high quality, timely completion and minimal fuss.
Our take-away menu advertised TamarindThai.com.au, even though the site didn’t exist.
Digital Tsunami offered great ideas and design to set up a professional website that matches our name, ideas and style of the restaurant.
Andrew is very knowledgeable IT professional and he never hesitated to see and consult us in the restaurant.
