2014 Chinese New Year Parade

Thanks to all the club members who came out to represent the club for the year of the horse, 4712.  The club leaders look forward to a great 2014.  A big thanks to Edison Chow for stepping up and taking on the responsibility of ensuring PS2 will be open for the club members and possible future members to come out and practice.

Pictures and Video have been uploaded on the club’s video and flickr page.  Apologies for the shaky video as this was our first time using the HD video camera for an event.  Enjoy the pictures/video in the mean time, and once again apologies if it gives you a headache watching the videos.

Happy New Year from the New York Strangers

The New York Strangers would like to wish everyone out there a happy and healthy 4711.

The Year of The Snake

The lunar year 4711 will mark the year of the Snake.
Occupying the 6th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Snake symbolizes such character traits as intelligence, gracefulness and materialism. When it comes to decision-making, Snakes are extremely analytical and precise.

Contemplative and private, the Snake is not outwardly emotional. He can appear cunning and reticent and works very modestly in the business environment. The Snake will plot and scheme to make certain things turn out exactly as they want them to. They are not great communicators and can become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner.

Snakes have very few friends because thy are not outwardly emotional or open creatures. The friends they do make generally last a lifetime, even though peers may find it hard to relate to the Snake because he is withdrawn and secretive. Still, Snakes like social functions, in moderation, where they can gossip about the latest scandal or the newest news. If you stab a Snake in the back it is likely you will never be forgiven. In addition, you should prepare yourself for retaliation for the Snake always gets the last word.

With 2013 being the first full year that the New York Strangers are an official 501(c)3 charity, the organization is planning to start reaching out to the community and show everyone what the New York Strangers can do for Asian Community.  So remember, bookmark our page and keep up to date with the upcoming events for Asian Heritage Month coming up in May 2013.2013_snake_year_of-2_zpsec809be1
