Feeling Meh-eh-eh

      Don't you just love Chinese cut paper art? It's called jianzhi, by the way. Usually done on red paper but sometimes on white and then lavishly colored just like this goat design.

     So today begins the Year of the Wood Goat. The Chinese believe that the goat (or sheep) is a lucky animal because, though a farm animal, it doesn't have to do farm work and is free to roam around and look for green grass... until the owner wants mutton for dinner LOL.

   Have you read your fortune forecast for the Year of the Goat? I always read mine from and this year is another mehhh year for me. You know, though the goat and the rabbit are chums, the elements they carry are not. I'm a Wood Rabbit that's low on water and the Wood Goat also bring earth and fire but no water or metal. So I have 2 elements that consumes water and one that evaporates water. : /   
       Basically, the advice given is that I keep good reputation (as I always do)  among my friends, colleagues and relatives of the same generation as I am  - because they will really be around this year, and they can help me earn some ka-chings. So I need to have a more out-going personality to tap into these available resources.

       Having good luck actually means getting something good by chance rather than by one's own effort. And since I'm low on luck this year, according to Chinese astrologers who apparently has an interestingly time-tested system of calculating an individual's fortune, looks like I'm gonna have to sweat for the good stuff.

         Anyway, weather or not you believe in the concept of luck, I wish you, my dear readers, all the good things.  Kiong Hee Huat Tsai!
