Though it's the terrible time of examination for many of us, it happens to be Chinese New Year, 2004 for the lunar calender today (Jan.22). So, I wish all of us a happy Chinese new year, and best of luck to whatever you're doing in the close and distant future! n_n

Hey, don't make it Chinese, make it Lunar because Chinese are not the only ones celebrating :pirate:. Now that I'm done with the nitpicking, I extend my wishes of good luck to all comers, and remember to wear red on this auspicious day!

awww... but I believe the only ones who celebrate "lunar" new year is the chinese. They're the only one who used the lunar calender until quite recently it is known to everyone else, and hence we still name "lunar" new year "chinese" XD *c*

but either way... hope everyone who got Lai See (Hong Bao/Red Envelope) got a lot of money off of it. Today is the only day I'll get money for the whole year XD so I know i'm happy *c*

Well I don't really care to open my hongbaos to count the money. In fact this is the 2nd day and I haven't done so yet :P
I know that the hongbaos I get are something to symbolise well-wishing and good luck, so I don't really care what amount I'm getting. Anyway, with all those money, what are all of you going to do with them?
Me: Save half and leave the other half for daily school expenses, like photocopies and guidebooks =P

Save em for when youre out of the house someday. FFX-2 will cost like $5 by that time! ^_^;

Happy Chinese New Year! Maybe we should resurrect that topic about which animal you are? Doesnt that have to do with this too?

Purin
January 22nd, 2004, 03:54 PM
Yes!!! 2004 is the year of the monkey btw. So do we do it here or remake a thread?
Anyway, I'm born in the year of the dragon, which is in 1988.
I think this is the sequence of the 12 zodiacs:

Rat
Ox
Tiger
Rabbit
Dragon
Snake
Horse
Sheep
Monkey
Rooster
Dog
Pig

I may have gotten them wrong though O_O;;

Frostweaver
January 22nd, 2004, 04:08 PM
It's in the right order... the order is stuck in my head as my poor Social teacher in grade 2 drilled that sequence into my head now (in chinese of course ^_^; )

Canada always make stamps dedicated to the zodiac of the year... this year they did make a stamp with a monkey on it, but any chinese would know that they screwed up real bad... (looks perfect to everyone who didn't read this particular famous, VERY famous chinese novel though)

Purin
January 22nd, 2004, 04:19 PM
Xi you ji? (Sun wukong)
I dunno the order well, but I can memorise the first 6 correctly ^_^;;

Frostweaver
January 22nd, 2004, 04:22 PM
mmhmm... you're right Purin. Though there is a "monkey" featured in that book, it doesn't exactly represent the year of the monkey, or anything related to monkey at all... -_-

But then again... it's not like I collect stamps XD *c*

Some words I had to say to my relatives I can't remember, but they wouldn't give the envelopes to be unless I said it. Can't say it here though. Since I can't write in Pinyin.

Frostweaver
January 22nd, 2004, 05:09 PM
all people makes you say those greetings before they give you the Lai See. But I got use to it now (doesn't annoy me anymore unlike how I used to think about those stuff when I was young)

*believes that Miyu Chan doesn't understand "mandarin" because it is written with illegal/unofficial pinyin methods ^_^;*

*to Frostweaver, it sounds like happy new year in mandarin written in wtih strange pinyin...*

*believes that that statement means Happy new year because he believes that "nian" is the correct pinyin for year... and then he just guessed all the other 3 out...*

I'm Vietnamese, and we also celebrate this. So I get kinda offended when people insist on "Chinese", even when you point out that it's not just Chinese. However, I won't make a big thing of it.

Our red envelopes are li xi, with accent marks that I can't remember. You are supposed to say some words before you can get it, but nowadays I usually just coax it out of my parents.

Heh, nothing tradtion. It's basically meat + flour (cooked :P) and how it tastes depends on when you put in it when your making it and what sauce you dip them in when they're cooked.

We usually use Soy Sauce, Vinegar, Hot Sauce, and something else as the sauce...

In Shannxi, where I came from, people are known for consuming a lot of vinegar. :\ But they've been getting richer.

Wait, aren't burnt things a bit too bitter tasting? =/ (unless they are things that are meant to be 'burnt)

lol, I won't end up burning the stuff if I cook hopefully. ^^'

*and your point is...?*

*actually burnt games are never classified as illegal unless you sell them for your own profit according to Edmonton Bylaws*

<= completely immoral in terms of CD burning

Meh, I was told burning copies of Audio CDs for yourself (not for sale) are legal and that burning games are not allowed under any circumstance.

What do you mean what my point is? >=( I was answering your question even though it didn't necessary call for one. :P
