The replica is one third the size of the real Eiffel Tower and is located in the Tianducheng residential area in the outskirts of Hangzhou, where rows of European-style houses also have been built. The replica created worldwide debates when it was featured on Reuters in Sept earlier this year.

The 108-meter steel structure is the second-largest Eiffel Tower replica in the world after the 165-meter-high tower in Las Vegas in the United States.

Chinese workers have made a huge drum, decorated with 480 lanterns in Dalian, Liaoning Province, China. The drum measures 6 metres in length and 4.8 metres in diameter, with Chinese word rat (鼠) embedded at the surface on both sides of the drum to celebrate the coming new year.

Chinese calendar is represented with 12 zodiac animals for every 12-year cycle in specific sequence – rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Next year will be the year of rat (begins on Feb 7 on Chinese New Year to be precise).

In Chinese astrology, the 12 zodiac animals represent different character and luck for a person depending on his/her birth date and time. The months and hours of Chinese calendar are also categorized by the same group of animals in particular orders, but some formal terms would normally be used instead of the zodiac animals when referring to months or hours.

Korean pop girls group S.E.S got back together to celebrate their 10th anniversary at a special reunion with fans on Dec 9. It was their first official appearance as a group in 5 years.

S.E.S made their public debut in Nov 1997 and was arguably the most popular Korean girls group in late 90s and early 2000s. The group was however disbanded (albeit unofficially) in late 2002 with all the 3 members (Bada, Eugene and Shoo) pursuing their solo career instead.
