The Year of the Dog

Kung Hei Fat Choi!
Happy Chinese New Year everyone.

This year will be the Year of the Dog.

People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are honest, and inspire other people's confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog People are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally and sometimes distant at parties. They can find fault with many things and are noted for their sharp tongues.

I got up early this morning to talk to relatives overseas. Our morning is their night so a worldly compromise must be made on who calls whom. For the first time though we called to Guangzhou using the internet and the power of webcam conferencing. They thought this to be a neat trick and something we must do more of in the future. Because this Saturday is actually New Year's Eve, tomorrow will be the day the family goes to visit my grandparents and ancestors and pay honor to the family. Unfortunately I can't be with them and so my cousins will have to take along my prayers and blessings.
