Gung hay fat choi

It’s Chinese New Year! Whee! Fireworks! Lots of food!
We spent the weekend with The Boy and his family, eating way too much food (and it was all sooooo good).
This year is a very special year, considered very lucky by Chinese people.
The Year of the Golden/Yin Fire Pig (or Ding Hai) comes around once every sixty years.
The Pig is the last of the twelve Zodiac Animals, and in a lot of ways, that means the year of the pig is one of closure, of tying up loose ends.

I was born in the year of the Snake, and this is what my horoscope said for the upcoming year (yes, I admit I looked around until I found one I liked, hehehe):

Snakes increase their income and a promotion may be heading their way. This paves the way to a much more interesting and satisfying career and this pleasant financial surprise will allow you to purchase something you couldn’t previously afford. Take time for a health check-up in 2007 and promptly attend to any illness or injury while this Pig year opposition is in effect. Stomach problems can cause your digestive tract to act up. Be cautious of overindulging in food or drink. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. A temporary rocky road this year, wait with patience, settle in and learn a new spiritual art.

Sounds good, right?

Which eyar were you born in, and what’s in store for you? Or do you hate all that mumbo jumbo?

    Hi Kiki,
    I just found your blog (via a very circuitous e-mail route). I’m also a writer–I write Christian Asian American chick lit, and my debut novel is coming out in September this year. It’s so cool to meet another Asian writer–there are so few of us!
