新年快乐

This year marks the year of the pig which is associated with fertility and virility. You are considered to be very fortunate if you have babies during this year. Those kids will grow up to be happy and honest. So maybe that’s why China has such a high population. It’s like every twelve years, every husband and wife gets together and make babies. What better way to stay warm in the winter eh?

Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese friends and to all my Vietnamese friends too since they celebrate it on the same day. I’m sorry but I don’t have any red envelopes for everyone. I can’t afford to give money to all of your because I am poor. Well, I can give you red envelopes but just don’t expect any money inside of it.

Here is your fortune of the day:
He who laughs last is laughing at you.

  1. Thanks Don! Ya happy new year to my fellow Chinese and Vietnamese friends. In Chinese tradition, you don’t give red envelopes unless you’re married. As for Vietnamese tradition, anyone can give envelopes to anyone. This is the time to see who’s generous and who’s cheap, right fishman?

  2. hehehe.. that might be how they say it in north north China by the Mongolian border.. 😛 I think it’s more along the lines of Kung Hei Fat Choi…
