Chinese New Year Carnival Celebrates KDU’s Cultural Diversity

Chinese calligraphy is the art of writing Chinese characters with a brush. Each character requires a certain number of brush strokes written in a specific order. For Chinese New Year celebrations, it is customary for Chinese families to have living blooms in the house, which symbolize rebirth and new growth.
