Happy new year! Get a discount on your Chinese take-away

Get in quick – only first 5,000 nationwide are eligible for 10% off

Kung hei fat choi as we former Hong Kong residents say. I was there for a year working on the now defunct Hong Kong Star newspaper back when the Brits were still in charge.

As you are doubtless aware, it means Happy New Year in Cantonese.

Yes, the Chinese are celebrating their new year today. Chinese New Year 2021 is set to be a different celebration compared with previous years, with national restrictions in place preventing the usual festivities taking place. Though I bet you can’t get through the day without hearing some firecrackers going off. This is the year of the Ox, an animal that symbolises strength and determination, which is very appropriate during these current circumstances.

And what better way to celebrate than ordering a take-away, especially if there is a discount involved? One of the UK’s leading takeaway delivery apps, Foodhub, is offering 10% off on all Chinese orders placed via the app or website on Chinese New Year for today (February 12) only.

Dave Buckley is a career journalist. “I once went painting girders for a week and discovered I didn’t like heights,” he says. “Apart from that it has always been journalism for me in one form or another.” Past local weekly publications he has worked for include: the South-East London Mercury* covering the Borough of Greenwich as a junior reporter; Orpington-based News Shopper as a sub-editor; and the Kent Messenger when based in Larkfield, Maidstone, as deputy chief sub-editor. He has also worked for the following dailies/nationals: Daily Express, Today*, News of the World* and Hong Kong Star*. All those marked with an asterisk no longer exist (trend emerging?). He owned and edited a Thailand-based property magazine before returning to England and currently works as a production editor on a car fleet magazine. His first foray into property ownership saw him move from London to Rainham (the Gillingham, Kent, variety). He has subsequently lived in Chislehurst, Petts Wood and Orpington in the Borough of Bromley (which he still regards as being in Kent). In more recent years he owned three different properties on the Kings Hill (West Malling) development.
