Same same – but different …

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!

„Same same – but different“ is a common phrase in many Asian cultures. It is used in manifold context to describe subtle nuances. In this sense we may wish our colleagues, business partners or peers in China a ‚Happy New Year‘ these days. However you may want to keep in mind that even though the gesture of sharing best wishes might be ’same same‘ – the meaning and practice is ‚different‘, and so is the importance of this holiday.
