Today is a holiday!
In Chinese astrology, 2012 is the year of the water dragon. I remember when we went to see a bubble show last June, the dragon was main character of the show. The setting looked like we were underwater. So, this might be the water dragon.
I have quite an affinity for dragons. Most of my classmates were born in the year of the dragon. (Yes, they are turning
36 24 this year. 😉 ) My father was also born in the year of the dragon. One of my favorite characters in ‘Game of Thrones’ had dragons. (I just have to include that. I’m trying to finish the 4th book.) Dragons are fierce mythical creatures. They are interesting and they are supposed to be lucky. I am only annoyed at one thing: I was born a year late. Thus, I am a snake. Not a fun creature. I feel like Harry Potter. The sorting hat thinks he should be a Slytherin but he chose to be a Gryffindor. Chinese astrology only thinks I am snake but I am really a dragon. Pak!
Anyway, do not take me too seriously. I am not into astrology. I do not know if this year is lucky for snakes like me. One thing is for sure: This is going to be a great year. I say so!
I found this on Pinterest:
Really interesting post! 🙂 I don’t really rely on Chinese astrology, but I find it quite fun. Haha.. I’m a metal horse and I don’t know if this year will be a lucky one for me. It’ll be wonderful though.. 🙂 Happy Chinese new year sis!
A relative was kind enough to send tikoy. I am a lucky girl. Happy New Year, Sumi!
I’m not too superstitious too but what I like to do is to just read the forecasts haha; especially that of the Chinese astrology… I actually have to catch up ’cause I kind of forgot what I am and what my ‘fortune’ is for this year. :)) But anyway, we’re kind of the same. No matter what the ‘stars’ or whanots would say, I know this year would be great because I’ll make it as one.
Happy Chinese New Year to you 🙂
Happy Lunar New Year, Aileen! Yay for positivity!
Happy CNY!! I love that last photo and I always believe in it. True enough, something wonderful really happens all the time :))
Hi, Gizel! True. We just have to learn to appreciate the silver lining behind dark clouds.
i hope this year will be lucky for us 😀 HAHA and that quote is quite handy for those days that you’re feeling down 🙂
It will be a great year! We will make that happen.
Hi kat! The alliance of dragons and snakes is strong and whenever these two get together, it’s always for good. I always buy a feng shui book just before the CNY and guess what, it’s a wonderful year for snakes! I agree with you tho. Sabi nga ni (professional heckler).. “Ang mga bituin ay gabay lamang. Meron tayong free will, gamiting natin ito.” Hihihi
Hi, Din! Yehey!!! Woot! Woot! My free will is saying it’s gonna be a great year. At nag-agree pa ang feng shui! Ang saya!
I am a dragon. So it will be my year. Happy New Year, Kat! Really love your positivity!
Happy New Year, Grace! I’m claiming this year and next year as my yearsss. hahaha
