Every year three strangers join my family and I for Chinese New Year. Their names? Chow Yun fat, Stephen Chow, and Andy Lau. They make the older ladies in my family real happy. See, no Chinese New Year reunion dinner is complete with these Hong Kong stars filling the atmosphere with their wise-cracks and gambling tips.

They are ice-breakers, the centre of jokes and help fill in long, awkward silences. If you haven’t used them yet, you better get cracking and download or stream them.
