Happy Lunar New Year

It is time the tiger says farewell and hands over the reign to the rabbit. As a guy born in the year of the tiger, the previous lunar new year was a mixed one for me. On the workfront, it didn't turn out as I expected but the brief hiatus from work commitments allowed me the time to re-connect with some old friends and share some happiness.

The rabbit brings to mind the image of prolific reproductivity.... but don't get any ideas, of course the missus and I are well past that stage. Perhaps the aspiration we can wish for is for the abundance in health, wealth and good fortune for the coming year. And I relay that wish to all my Chinese friends and readers.... Gong Xi Fa Cai...

Iqa read in newspapers that Rabbit is not a good year sign..semua yg lahir tahun ni akan ada masalah kesihatan! (Iqa is born on this year!) I said mengarutlah..takkan semua sama dalam satu tahun..

Hi Lee,

It rained heavily all over Malaysia the previous weekend. Floods in some parts of the country. Doesn't look like drying out anytime soon...
You stay warm over there, my friend.

Hliza, hope Iqa is coping well with her condition. Tell her that disease or illness has nothing to do with the zodiac.
