Between wiping specks of dust from the most elusive corners of your house, sealing up (or unsealing) those red packets and scrounging around markets for the best Chinese New Year discounts, Netflix has given you the perfect way to catch some quiet moments with your loved ones amidst all the festivities this time of year.
Simply type ‘888’ into the search bar (8 represents wealth and prosperity in Chinese culture) and you will have exclusive access to over 100 Chinese films and tv shows, from the evergreen Lunar favourites to underrated originals. If you fancy yourself some comedy classics to get some serious giggles going, Netflix offers titles like God of Gamblers and Hail the Judge. Or, if you would rather tune into shows you may have not seen before, consider Nowhere Man or Triad Princess.
So visit the temple and head to the flower market, then when you are done, snuggle up with your friends and family to watch your favourite Chinese films and tv shows. We really cannot think of a better way to celebrate our best holiday. By Ananta Agarwal
