Year of the Tiger


Happy New Year to those welcoming in the Year of the Tiger! The tiger is the king of the animals in Chinese culture, and is the move revered amongst the 12 animals in Chinese zodiac. This year is to be a year of "grand beginnings and new directions." The BF and I will be having an epic feast with my family and I'm ready to collect my "lucky money" (in red envelopes). Note that only single people can collect "lucky money." Once you're married, you start passing out the "lucky money" - a fact I remind my married younger sister all the time. ;)

And of course, Happy Valentine's Day to all! Especially to the BF.

Happy New Year dear! I still got money this year, woo hoo (parent's friends when we were in NYC). I do have to start giving but there's no one around in Singapore so that just means Mr. Gadget and I treat ourselves I guess!
