Happy Chinese New Year

So it’s the year of the dog. Canine. Woof woof. What year were you born, according to Chinese calendar? Me a happy rabbit! Wheee!! xD Traditionally speaking, dog year is a good year for rabbits, tigers, and another one which I forgot what animal. Hahaha. If I were to relate the animals accordingly, perhaps I’d say the rabbit is relaxing on the back of the tiger, as they journey together through the woods. Of course, the ever playful puppy.. I mean dog *coughs* – is running forth and back and in circle, accompanying the bunny and the big cat. Wait. Did I mention that they’re going to the grand banquet? lol

Why No Cat Year?

Can’t remember. Doesn’t matter. Bhahahaha. Okay, okay… I know the story. The “how did the cat miss the grand gathering, hence lost its golden ticket to have its own year” story. But I’d rather not spoil the celebration, mind you. So kittens and catnip lovers, you just have to wait, Again. Awwww… poor you kitty kitty kitty~ =p okay laaa… go baca this discussion about why is the cat not in the Chinese zodiac roster.

Darn it..

Can I cry? Haha..

Honestly… Chinese New Year has some sort of permanent impact on me. In my life, to be exact. No~ not my birthday lah. Neither the day I… sigh… . . Stress la, every year pon nak sedih camni. Teruk betul. Ihik. But yeah.. I can still recall.. her voices.. resounding in my head.. via the phone call. And how I wish.. I had listened to her..

 

Friday, February 16th 2007.. Everybody had gone back to their hometown. Balek kampung, so to say. A few friends of mine, and I myself, planned to stay in college a little longer. What’s the rush, I told my thoughtless self. Saturday was the start of the school break. Chinese New Year on that coming Sunday, and every school and every maktab got to enjoy one week off as their midterm break, in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration.

.. God.. grant me strength to write this..

Okay. So stay I did. Later that night, I got a call from my mom. . You have no idea how long the pause that I took before I could continue writing this very sentence you are reading.. from the previous one..

aaaannnd I think I better stop here. Haha.. my heart is not ready. Perhaps… just perhaps… I’ll write everything in the next entry. Sunday, February 18. But no promises. Eheh…

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Gong Hey Fat Choy! Xīn Nián Kuài Lè! 新年快乐!! I’m still in Winter Olympics mood so I don’t wanna wish you Chun Jie Kuai Le..  hahahaha. Let’s go Japan! Bring it on, USA!! Wohoooooo!!!
