Toots, wonderful idea to take your Chinese friend to dinner during the Chinese New Year period which starts on 18 February and lasts for 15 days. A lot has been said about do's and don'ts for the tradition minded but I am afraid the simplest custom of all has been overlooked! When you first meet your friend during the festive period, do bring two nice oranges with you and offer them to her with both hands outstretched wishing her "Kong Hee Fatt Choy". I am sure she will appreciate your gesture and show it too!

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

I know I'm late in this, but if you are not familiar with Asian culture, you have to be careful with gift-giving. I like the meal/food concept, but be careful with objects because you may wind up finding yourself in a circle of trying to find gifts that equal the gift you were getting, that equals the gift you got before. Stick to food and celebration.
