Unbelievable but true! The year of the Rat is about to end its run and all the chinese people of this world (well, at least I would like to think they all are) are preparing to usher in the Ox in 2009. For those who doesn't know already, the lunar new year for 2009 falls on the 26th of January 2009. Can't believe how fast time seems to fly by so quickly. Just a couple of weeks ago, Christmas decorations are everywhere in the shopping malls. Now it's all about chinese decorations! And the fengshui masters are predicting that this is going to be a tough year indeed! Well people, I don't think we need them to tell us that huh? Everyone knows we have to work like cows this year what with the current economy in such bad shape! Let's hope the ox will help us ride out this financial tsumani and come out surviving if not prospering... Having said that, I would like to wish all Chinese of this world, A Very Happy and Prosperous Year Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
