Chinese New Year of the Rooster 2017

2017 is the year of the rooster. The Rooster is tenth in the cycle of the twelve animals and corresponds to the Earthly Branch Yu. The Character for Yu is shaped like a vine, and it is matched to the Eighth Month, the time when the grape has had a chance to ferment. The Rooster is a popular animal in Chinese legend and traditionally is one of the animals who passes on advise from heaven. Someone born in the year of the Rooster is intuitive, honest and intelligent. Your decisions are respected and your business or career will always be successful. You accept challenges and are rarely defeated by obstacles.


Jing-An has been involved in numerous events with various companies, teaching them about the healing power of Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Chinese medicine.

Jing-an gives back to the community over Chinese New Year

In the spirit of Chinese New Year, Jing-an hosted a dinner to raise funds for the Bright Lights Centre for Homeless Children in Somerset West.

Chinese New Year is celebrated every year between the end of January and the beginning of February, depending on the lunar system. In keeping with tradition, Chinese children across the world receive a red envelope containing money, called “Foong Pao” or “Lucky Money”. These gifts wish good fortune and prosperity to the children. 2013 is the Year of the Snake in the Chinese calendar, and the snake represents kindness, intelligence and wisdom.

Chinese New Year was held on 10 February this year and Dr Michael Lan, owner of Jing-An, felt that 2013’s Year of the Snake is special for the people of South Africa, particularly for children. On 9 February, the eve of the New Year, Dr Lan hosted a New Year celebration at Mr. Chan Chinese Restaurant in Sea Point. Family, friends and tai chi students attended the dinner, which is an annual event for Dr Lan.

Before guests enjoyed the colourful food and festivities, they were asked to put money in red envelopes or “Foong Pao” as a donation to the Bright Lights Centre for Homeless Children. The envelopes were collected by Ielhaam Booley, coordinator of the event, and handed over to Sergeant Niklaas Thysen, a representative of the Bright Lights Centre for Homeless Children.  Sergeant Thysen has been training in tai chi with Dr Michael Lan for a number of years and understands the true principles of sharing and giving to others.

Bettie Van Noordwyk, manageress of the Bright Lights Centre, was unable to attend the event, but has expressed her gratitude for the donation, which has brought great happiness to the children.
