The Chinese zodiac, or shengxiao (/shnng-sshyao/ ‘born resembling'), is a repeating cycle of 12 years, with each year being represented by an animal and its reputed attributes. Chinese zodiac animals have lucky meanings. Chinese people associate each animal with certain characteristics. It's believed that people born in a given year have the personality of that year's animal
Lan Jie, Artisan Extraordinaire
When you meet Madam Joo Choon Lan or more personally known as "Lan Jie", only one-word strike you: "Bravery".
Lan Jie was stricken with severe polio syndrome since young and has been riddled with many life challenges thrown at her. She is now wheelchair-bound.
Her husband, 'Ming Kor' was a mechanic before he meets with an accident 30 years ago which left him with a limp. He recently met with another mishap which further reduces his mobility. The family lost their livelihood since then. Lan Jie was undeterred and decided to home produce DIY handcrafts for a living. Yi Zhen 'Ah Boy" helps out during holidays to push Ming Kor through the Kopitiams to sell these products.
