New York, Week 6 – Chinese New Year

Week 6 blog_EMEmer McKenna

It’s been a very busy week having to prepare 58 Partnership extensions for a large fund.  The fund has many different combinations of states and cities so I had to devise a control sheet that helped me track progress.  The office celebrated Chinese New Year by partaking in the Chinese tradition of  handing out red envelopes, which is something I haven’t experienced before.  The color of the envelope symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits.

This week my fiancé flew over to visit me.  We went exploring around the city visiting all the main sites and attractions including Wall Street (and the bull), Brooklyn Bridge, Queens, Chinatown and SoHo.  We also went shopping to Century 21 for some designer bargains!
