The Year of the Ox has arrived! Financial analysts around the world are busy predicting the year ahead─is it gonna be bull's run or a 'hardworking' year? No one knows...
Been busy springcleaning and putting up some CNY decor. Here's a glimpse of my living room niche. Flowers represent spring─'hwa kai fu gui' (when the flowers bloom, prosperity and good luck follows).
And the basket of mandarin oranges that's supposed to represent a basket of 'gold' (pronounced 'kum' in cantonese). When people go visiting during CNY, oranges are exchanged and the wish of prosperity and wealth is given to the other person receiving the oranges. Of course, good wishes such as 'shen ti jian kang' (wish you health) and 'bu bu gao sheng' (may you get promotions) are other common terms.
OK, I was distracted... :p My new shuttles have arrived! Got my first HDT too. (Hee hee...) This is the ceramic shuttle from Sherry, and 'Marina'.
Jan's shuttles have also arrived.
Ain't they beautiful?!
Blessed wishes to all my friends. 'Gong xi fa cai' (congratulations on gaining wealth).
