 And you guessed it right, all around the Metro, people are greeting each other on Twitter as the Chinese New Year ushered in last midnight.

The Chinese New Year greeting in the Hokkien dialect is "Kiong Hee Huat Tsai" which translates to “Congratulations and wishing you prosperity!”  

Also, the Cantonese version, “Kung Hei Fat Choi” is still obviously the more popular greeting.  However, Filipinos are now urged to use and adapt the Hokkien version since it's the dialect spoken in the Fujian province where most of the Chinese-Filipinos come from.
