Happy Chinese New Year Fortunes!

No matter if you’re lounging on a tropical beach with a cold drink and good book in hand…

 …blasting fireworks off with the family in the countryside…


 or enjoying a good ole’ staycation and catching up on your backlog of TV series…


…we wish you a happy Chinese New Year full of fantastic food and good times!

May your Year of the Dog be filled with prosperity and plenty of good fortune, and since we didn’t get to stuff fortune cookies with our customized messages before Spring Festival, we’ll share our tasty little nuggets of wisdom with you over WeChat instead.

A beautiful, smart, and loving person will be coming into your life. It’s a Sherpa’s courier!

In anticipation of Chinese New Year, we would like to predict what 2018 has in store for the 12 zodiac signs in the lunar calendar. Are you ready? Here’s how your animal might affect you in the year ahead:



Years: 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020

Rat is the first zodiac in the 12-year cycle and that reflects on your personality. As a forever early bird, you are used to getting the best worms. Witty and alert to the surrounding world, people born in the Year of the Rat are ideal companions for trying out food fads FIRST. Only you would line up for Cronuts/cheese tea/unicorn desserts at ungodly hours.



Years: 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021

All the other zodiacs are jealous of your strength to both endure and succeed. You are very content with life in China and rarely complain about the smog, rush-hour crowds or VPN failures. However, the Ox typically follows the same routine all the time. We suggest you to step out of your comfort zone in 2018. Go check out Xinjiang or Inner Mongolia. Eat more street food. Double up the spice. The world is your oyster!



Years: 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022

While Tigers seem aggressive at times, there’s a lot to learn from the trust and stability they inspire in others. You put in the hours and make an effort to become a more localized version of an expat. But don’t be so square – it’s okay not to eat Chinese food for three consecutive days and survive off Sherpa’s. When you feel stressed out, we suggest blowing off some steam at Specters followed by KTV.



Years: 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023

Are you wearing enough pink, purple and blue? These are your lucky colors, Rabbit! Since this sign is prone to illnesses during the cooler months of the year, we advise you to start taking those FitFam classes you’ve been holding off ASAP. Also, stay tuned for spring – Sherpa’s is launching Rabbit-friendly nutritious meal sets for the most gentle and purehearted zodiac of them all.



Years: 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024

If you need inspiration to be strong, simply look up to the Dragons in your life. The most vital and powerful beast in the Chinese zodiac, this sign is gifted with innate courage, tenacity and intelligence. Dragons are basically the Alphas in Brave New World. On the flip side, if you piss them off it’s not anything burger & fries could fix. A three-course free-flow brunch at The Cannery will suffice at best.



Years: 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025

As much as people might find you poker-faced and vain, Snakes – the most enigmatic animal among the twelve zodiacs – live their life according to their own judgments. You are extremely goal-driven and hate to fail. To improve your luck in 2018, why don’t you achieve personal growth through volunteering? You could teach disadvantaged children at Stepping Stones, support Baobei’s efforts to rehabilitate orphans, or foster a pet from SCAA. Let’s face it: snakes get a bad rap. It’s about time to turn it around.



Years: 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026

If we could nominate for People’s Favourite Zodiac Award, you would win by a landslide! Horses love being the center of attention as they know exactly how to flaunt their best qualities in front of an audience. Before you get too confident with your shiny coat and groomed mane, try your luck in stand-up at Kung-Fu Komedy. Your self-admiration will either reach new heights or fall flat. What’s it going to be?

goat small


Years: 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027

You are like a talisman, improving the lives of people around you. But due to the Goat’s personality traits, you keep that circle incredibly tight. In the upcoming year, try to build relationships and allow more newcomers into your life. You don’t want to feel the loneliness of isolation – that path is never set for good. Instead of curling up on the sofa with Sherpa’s takeout, meet likeminded people at a book club or behind the mahjong table.



Years: 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028

Always curious and a little restless, Monkeys will find themselves on the crossroads of life this year. A part of you wants to ditch all your responsibilities and make a fresh start as a yoga teacher somewhere in Southeast Asia. But when Monkeys ground themselves (Headspace APP – compulsory download), they will realize that Shanghai is a goldmine of opportunities. Blossom where you’re planted, kid!


Years: 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029

Not necessarily the cock of the walk, but rather one of the more stoic zodiac animals. Those born during the Year of the Rooster are the best to dine with, as they’ve a tendency to go with their gut instinct and would never agonise over a menu. A Rooster knows what makes them happy and will always make the right choice. Not the type to ruffle feathers, they’re also known to go with the flow, compromise and entertain; the perfect friend to be your wing at the bar.


Years: 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030

Did you know that Donald Trump was born in the Year of the Dog? We’re getting off to a rough start, aren’t we? If it consoles you, 99% of Dogs have a strong sense of loyalty and sincerity. In 2018, Dogs should be hands on with career, family and ordering Sherpa’s. While this year’s astrological associations might not be in favor of your zodiac, don’t let worries grow too big. PS: try arranging your furniture and dwellings towards southeast.

pig small


Years: 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031

Pigs tend to believe all people are fundametally good. Instead of taking, you give. Both friends and strangers see you as an incredibly warm and caring character – until someone dares to force their opinions on you. In 2018, start letting go. We’re talking about negative energies. Don’t feel bad for saying “no” or “cannot”. Surround yourself only with the best – food and drink being the priority, obviously.
