The Lunar New Year is a time for family reunions and rest, and those are the reasons that actor Michael Tse loves it very much.
As reported on Popular Asians website, the actor, who barely sleeps due to working 12 months a year and seven days a week, revealed that he used his Lunar New Year holiday to go shopping in the flower market.
The actor expressed, "I think shopping in the flower market is really fun. I will go when it's not during peak hours for convenience. Usually, on the days before Lunar New Year, I will shop for some New Year couplets, New Year plants, and red envelopes. I will decorate my house with them."
The actor joked, "The best part of shopping in a flower market is that I get to practice my bargaining skills. The prices for the New Year plants float around a lot. Of course I would like to be able to bargain the best price in the least amount of time! That would be the most satisfying of all!"
The actor also shared that he will try to cook a New Year's dish for his family every year, saying, "I will always purchase some ginseng, young deer, and dried seafood beforehand, because these are the ingredients we add in our food for Lunar New Year. But these dishes are rather difficult to cook. For a rookie cook like me, these are really profound dishes! I really need a senior or an elderly person to help me out. I still haven't learned how to cook them yet!"
Asked of his plans for the Year of the Golden Snake, Michael joked that he hopes to have a snake's lifestyle, saying, "I want to live like a snake – work hard in the summer and then rest for a few months in the winter. The best way is to have nine of months of work and three months of vacation."
On a more serious note, the actor revealed that this year, he will continue to pursue his career in both television and film. In addition to filming his new drama, "Sniper Attack 2013", he will also be promoting for his Lunar New Year film, "I Love Hong Kong 2013".
