Kung Hei Fat Choi



03 February 2011 Happy new year to all Filipino-Chinese!! [including me, who is 1/4 chinese..hehe! but haven't actually grew up in a chinese community so Chinese customs' stranger to me but it's not too late, isn't it?]. 


It's the time of the year for red lanterns, red envelopes [aka hóng bāo] and chinese zodiac. 


Although I am not addicted to zodiac signs, I grew up fascinated on how these signs affect other people's lives. Let me share you this:



The Chinese zodiac cycles every 12 years and each year is named after an animal. This 2011, Chinese New Year was last February 3, 2011 and the Year of the Rabbit will continue until January 22, 2012.

·         Rabbit : February 03, 2011 - January 22, 2012
·         Dragon : January 23, 2012 - February 09, 2013
·         Snake : February 10, 2013 - January 30, 2014
·         Horse : January 31, 2014 - February 18, 2015
·         Sheep : February 19, 2015 - February 07, 2016
·         Monkey : February 08, 2016 - January 27, 2017
·         Rooster : January 28, 2017 - February 18, 2018
·         Dog : February 19, 2018 - February 04, 2019
·         Pig : February 05, 2019 - January 24, 2020
·         Rat : January 25, 2020 - February 11, 2021
·         Ox : February 12, 2021 - January 31, 2022
·         Tiger : February 1, 2023 - February 19, 2011

It's nice to know a thing or two about these things and one of my office mates even told me that this year's not my year because of my birth sign. But in my humble opinion, it's not the stars nor the signs who will give you luck... for me, it's your attitude towards life, destiny perhaps? and the most powerful of all - prayers. 

May it all be a Great Year for all of Us!!! :)
