Taken from flickrHappy Chinese New Year to all my chinese friends!
According to the Chinese Zodiac and calender, this year, 2009 is the year of Ox. According to Wikipedia, the Ox is the sign of prosperity through fortitude and hard work. This powerful sign is a born leader, being quite dependable and possessing an innate ability to achieve great things. As one might guess, such people are dependable, calm, and modest. Like their animal namesake, the Ox is unswervingly patient, tireless in their work, and capable of enduring any amount of hardship without complaint.
In this chinese new year, I would like to wish all of you my chinese friends good health, that you may live every day in comfort, the company of friends and family, that you may never be lonely, wisdom to choose priorities, that you might spend your life where it matters most and Happy New Year that bring you all the goodness you deserve!
Happy Chinese New Year!
