It's still Saturday over here, but it will be Sunday by the time I get on here again.

Sunday, February 18, is the first of the ten days of celebrations in honor of the New Year. Remember: wear lots of red. If people give you a bunch of red envelopes, KEEP THEM, because there's probably some money inside.

2007 is The Year of the Boar. According to the Chinese Zodiac, Boars are:


Nobel and chivalrous. Your friends will be lifelong, yet you are prone to marital strife. Avoid other Boars. Marry a Rabbit or a Sheep


Yeah yeah. Once it's Sunday wherever you are, start partying. I'll be glad to host a big party here. Just remember: if you're going to drink, just make sure none of the kids get their hands on it. Drunk teenagers are not exactly pretty sights.

Gung hay fat choy. Yeah, I know, I love my Chinese heritage, even though I'm only half Chinese. I mean, how could you not love a holiday where people give you money? :D

I'm a Boar, and so is my husband. It does not bode well for us. But... we managed to stay together twenty one years, so there's hope for us!

Don't sweep any dirt out of the house on Sunday. Don't wash your hair either. You'll wash the good luck away. At least, that's what I heard. We need all the help we can get!

Happy New Year. Hope we all have a wonderful Year of the Pig (4049th year) -- it's supposed to be milder and more peaceful than the last three years.

Eat a lot of rice.

I'm a horse! My mother was a horse, and my daughter is a horse. Something sure runs in the family.

I'm a Sheep. I'm supposed to be most compatible with Boars and Rabbits, but never an Ox. Hmmmm. My dad is an Ox...

Well, that leaves me out then, I'm an Ox. Then again, I'm also not partial to going to jail for corruption of a minor either... ;)

Happy New Year!

You cook it, then. I'll loaf on the settee drinking green tea while you're slaving in the kitchen. :D

Xin Nian Kuai Le!

I just got a 1000 baht coupon to spend on baby clothes from BangNa Central (when we bought a new stroller). How cool is that! Walking around the store having to spend the 1000 baht was great fun.

The hotel we stayed in Sat night gave us a hong Bo with 1/2 a baht in it - scum bags.

Enjoy the holiday, the oranges, and the year of the pig.

I'm a pig.
