Jaser A. Marasigan: Enter the Rooster

From Manila Bulletin Online:

What was supposed to be a tradition among the Chinese has already become a fascination for most of us. With the growing popularity of celebrating the Chinese New Year, even among the non-Chinese, this festivity has surprisingly, elevated itself into a worldwide event with Hong Kong, Taiwan, Shanghai and Beijing leading the celebration (and was even declared a special holiday here). The Chinese in the Philippines have kept many of their traditions as a cultural minority group in the country, but they have also increasingly absorbed many dominant customs of the multi-cultural Filipino nation, in the same way as we have adopted their excellent cuisine and some of their unique practices such as Feng Shui.
