|If you follow the Chinese calendar, we've now entered the Year of the Monkey. Ironically, this year is not meant to herald exceptional good luck for those born in the Year of the Monkey (1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004), and they are advised to approach the year with a bit of caution!
Lucky colours this year are white, blue and gold, which may have significance for companies with those hues in their corporate livery.
Everyone at Forkliftaction takes this opportunity of wishing all our readers who celebrate this event the traditional greeting: 新年快乐, 万事如意!
