Gong Xi Fa Cai (Mandarin) Gong Hey Fat Choy (Cantonese) Happy new year (English...obviously).
2014 is the year of the horse in the Chinese calendar and it’s only a few days away, Friday 31st January to be exact, many businesses in China will close from about 25th January until about 2nd Febuary.
The holiday is celebrated by dozens of cultures in Asia including people in Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, and many more. To these cultures, this holiday is so important that it is celebrated and treated much like how we celebrate Christmas.
Sooo??, I hear you say… Well just about everything we use for vaping comes from China - batteries, cartos, clearomisers, atomizers, and whatever else you use.
Like it or not, the holiday completely shuts down factories, suppliers, and distribution centres alike.
It’s time to stock up people, in 2013 there were reports of shortages that lasted till mid February... Now we're not saying this will happen again, hopefully all that were affected learnt from last year…. but you never know!
Fortunately, Vapemate eliquid isn’t affected by the CNY as it’s made here in the UK and with over 190 different flavours to choose from, you're spoilt for choice!
With that all said, Have a happy and prosperous Chinese new year….Vape on!
