Posted:Year number 4701 ?? I think


"According to Chinese wisdom, the Year of the Rooster is shaped by the forces of fire, gold and earth."

I am a Monkey as is my son Jesse.

Any Roosters out there?
Have a great new year

Posted:sorry for reflecting a bad ish mood on this, but Chinese New Year has in some ways become a sham over here in manchester.

during my time at my primary school, my best friend up until the second to last year, was Chinese, but then he moved away. i used to go with him on Chinese new year, every year, to his parents restaurant, and we'd have a great time, and you'd only see one or two non-Oriental people there, and there would be fire crackers on the corner of each building and a HUGE parade down most of the streets in manchesters china town.

but over the last two years that i went with him, and when i went last year to see the parade, there was an entire switch over. there was only a few Oriental people, and most of them were the owners of shops and restaurants, and the people actually in the parade. and there were very little firecrackers that i could see.

i just feel that its sad that such a great time in the Chinese year is in some ways ruined by the "acceptance" of this country

------------------------------------------------------------

on a lighter note, Happy New Year to all the Chinese spinners on HoP, i'm not too sure what i am though frown


We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Happy chinese new year friends.

I am an ox. so is a friend of mine. she has the character for it tattoo'd on her back.

Only problem is she used the japanese character for it not the chinese.
so it can be interpreted as "cow" in japanese

And also can be read as "beef" in chinese.

I shouldnt laugh but.... she shoudlve used the chinese character

Still, i'm supposed to be "amazingly hard working and very independent. Although you are intelligent and friendly, you can sometimes be a bit selfish. Careerwise you would make a good scientist or poet"

I am a good scientist. I'm an ok poet. I'm writing a couple of scripts but I am best an actor...

happy new year poiples!! bounce


do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

Does this mean I have super powers for the day or something?

I've not felt anything different; maybe they'll come to be when I'm walking back from the pub this evening...

Posted:Yep, I'm a rooster.

I was reading in the paper that this year is predicted to be:
Prone to earthquakes (especially around the Pacific rim of fire)
Full of high winds and typhoons
Not so good for marriage or having a baby
BUT, due to a dominant 4th star (hey, I don't understand it either, I'm just passing on what I read), it's supposed to be full of lust thus much er, ah, shall we say "intimate moments" (geeze, how PC is that?). Ah, could be a very good year after all smile
