Time flies fast and it’s the time for Chinese communities to celebrate Chinese New Year. As we know, The Chinese New Year or Year of the Metal Rabbit starts on Thursday, 3 February 2011; many Chinese people will be taking a break during the Chinese New Year holidays.
Here we would like to remind you and suggest a few simple safety tips to avoid unnecessary incidents happen during the CNY celebrations.
Tip 1: Road safety. There are a lot of people will go back to hometown via their own vehicle and it’s advisable to bring your vehicle to the trusted car workshop to do period maintenance and make sure the car engine is in the top notch condition. Also, don’t underestimate the tire maintenance as well because good tires will ensure you reach home safe. Read more info about tire awareness and safety here.
Tip 2: Fireworks. If your kids are playing legal fireworks, make sure you are supervised them and don’t leave them alone.
Tip 3: Using Candles. Please remember never leave them unattended. Be sure to place them in a proper holder and keep flames at a safe distance from curtains and other easy flammable materials.
Tip 4: Cooking dinner. When cooking deep-fried food, dry it before you put it in the hot oil. Never fill the pan more than one third full of oil. If the oil starts to smoke, turn off the heat and leave the pan to cool. Don’t throw water over the pan.
Tip 5: Do not overload electrical sockets. One plug should be for one socket. If you must have more plugs connected always use a fused adapter.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday, and to all Chinese people, Gong Xi Fa Cai.
