Millions of people celebrated the Lunar year, also known as Chinese New Year.
This is the most important holiday in Asia, it is estimated that over 2 million people travelled to be with their families, causing what is being termed as "the biggest mass human migration on earth".
London hosted the largest celebration outside of Asia, and as always London City in SL follows real life events , bringing you the Best "real life" virtual experience on the grid, that others try to copy ... and fail miserably!
There was a "best in Oriental" evnet... and WOW!! you guys looked flipping awesome!!! ( making who to vote for very difficult)
We all had an amazing night, with great music fun chat and of course fireworks marking the arrival of the Snake and saying farewell to the Dragon.
In China the snake has a mixed reputation, its associated with wisdom, beauty and intelligence but also pride and anger... so lets hope we reap the rewards and the Snake is good to us :)
This lady sure packs a punch and takes no prisoners with her gorgeous and powerful voice, which is why she is one of Second Life's Superstars.
Funny, Witty, teamed with a fantastic voice, really does make this lady a class act and if you are one of the rare ones who haven't seen her performances you really don't know what you are missing. Adevina is a fantastic performer and entertainer.
