Players now put on your red gear anf travel to Shing Jea Monastery, this year's beast of honor is the Celestial Ox, a divine bovine that will descend from the heavens to bestow good luck upon the populace for all of 2009-but only if the traditional New Year's feast is suitably delicious for such an illustrious guest.
