  1. I always forget about Chinese New Year. I used to go into China Town in Manchester a lot , I'd forgotten how much fun it can be!. Think the only app suitable for me would be the Chinese Food one and even then I live down the road from a Chinese take-out!!

  2. That fung shui sleeping compass seems interesting! I have the hardest time falling asleep and staying asleep unless my alarm is going off, in which case, I snooze right through it! Thank you for sharing!
