Gong Xi Fa Cai!

And thus, the year of the golden OX dons upon us!

But what's so special about this year you might ask?
Here's a hint: it's definitely not the food, the brandishing new clothes nor the same ol' mah jong company...

Give up?

That's right folks, a SOLAR ECLIPSE!

Though partial but hey. It's better than nothing. And HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET TO SEE A SOLAR ECLIPSE IN YOUR SHORT, MISERABLE LIFESPAN???
Okay, so my mom's seen it before. But you'll never know when it might happen again!!
It's happening right now! So GO GO LOOK LOOK!!

...Okay, I'm over-exaggerating. You need a filter before you can actually, really SEE it happening. But there's always TV!
Or the National Planetarium!

...But it's almost night. Bah.


Forget what I said earlier, bring out them sexy cheongsams and samfus, brace your empty stomachs ready and practice your wishing!

It's time to reel in the $$ and lou ngam ngam!

And as always, new years are meant for change!
This time around, the Bull is significant to hard work.
Thus, whatever your goal may be, hope you're working hard to get it over and done with!
Though in my case, finally wearing a sleeveless OUT isn't such a good idea...

Gong Xi Fa Cai
you lot!
