Happy Chinese New Year 2007

Chinese New Year, also known as Spring festival, is celebrated on the first day of the first lunar month. For 2007, the first day falls on 18th February 2007. The celebration lasts for 15 days, and it will be celebrated by more than 1 billion Chinese all over the world. The 15th day is known as Chap Goh Meh (十五晚). A few days prior to Chinese New Year, Chinese, usually from urban areas "migrate" to their parental homes in the kampungs. In Malaysia, the migration begin on Friday, where Chinese rush home to to get ready for a sumptuous and elaborate Chuxi/s (除夕) or New Year Eve's family reunion dinner.

No insensitivity is intended to my Muslim friends. This year, 2007, is the year of the PIG. I know PIG is haram in certain religion. But the Chinese has been grading the new years with animal signs for the past 4704 years. I do sincerely hope all those religious apology seekers and grievance seekers out there can observe the sensitivity and basic decency to respect this cultural celebration and refrained from imposing their perverted religious opinions.

I shall be taking a good rest, this blog will not be updated during the Chinese New Year Celebration. In the mean time, to all the Hokkien, I would like to wish you "COCK Hee Huat Chai". To all the Cantonese, "Kong Hei FUCK Choi". To all the bananas (yellow outside, white inside), "Happy Chinese New Year". To all the Chitan ( white outside, yellow inside), "Gong Xi FART Chye"

Xing nien tau..... xing nien tau.... Tong tong Chiang.... tong tong Chiang.... tong Chiang, tong Chiang... Gongxi gongxi nie yah...... gongxi gonxi nie yah......
