Gong Hei Fatt Choy

Did i get that Right?
Well since My "chinese" bloodline is Cantonese, I made a sudden decision to wish EVeryone a GReat Chinese New Yar and yes growing up in Singapore, Iv'e heard all the funny little ditty's of "Gong Xi Fa Cai, Ang Pow Na Lie...or well I'm not so good at this Hanyu Pinyin thing and kind of wrote it how it sounds like, but I think you guys kind of understand.

By the way , I Never learnt mandarin in all my 13 years here, French was my 2nd language in school, so Yes SHAME on ME and I promise my self to take up some sort of course this year as a Resolution, to keep to One half of my 'Asian' roots ( I hear my self called that SOOoooo Often in recent times- Any guesses who? - Yes You know who I'm talking about) and well people speak the mandarin language the most in the world so figures.

Anyway in more recent years I've been too busy to celebrate CNY, but my mum goes all out to decorate the place, oranges and CNY decorations, just like Christmas, in which my mum goes mental on decorating the place, which actually is a good thing, but also very frustrating!

Which brings me to the Zodiac and Feng Shui. Yes this house is a Feng Shui convert with items I don't know much meaning about and as much as i HATE believing in all the Fuddy Duddy, I can't help but read up on my Zodiac. Year of the Dog, some
say Natural born bitch, hah, cheesy I know, but I seem to portray not too bad characteristics!

Ooooo nice day, finally sorry, a distraction, sitting in my sisters room, which I kind of moved into the day she moved to France, why? I dunno, my rooms kind of depressing for all sorts of random reasons, who knows I don't want to dwell into that, but it's a complete storage room now for all my things and much to my mum's chagrin, who is a neat freak!

Anyway, I also forgot to mention it was my sisters birthday on the 2nd of February, so I had a nice long chat with her and kind of choked up, because i miss her so much and I hadn't realised it. Seeing all her pictures on Facebook, makes me wish I c
ould go see her for a while like right now. I Miss Toulouse, the friends are amazing and would be good to go up to that 3 storey cabin and go try kill myself Snow Boarding again! Maybe I should try skiing next time!!!

Well i think it's just stress making me want to escape from this place, not that I want to leave what I have behind that is important to me- I just need some place, with no familiar faces, no gossip, no bitching , no miserable people - a place with a good vibe! Well and I guess I need someone familiar to talk to, because I feel like I'm around alot of people I don't know and don't care really much- and at least with her I can do what I want and be me and talk and talk and talk and catch up!

As I was saying she has moved into a new apartment with her BF, on a road aptly named cemetery road, as it's next to a cemetery! Ha! But how exciting to have her own place! In which I've been trying to find some or looking through ad's for shared apartments. It's not a difficult thing really, just that finding a place closer to town and something which won't create a huge whole in my pocket and well hopefully not with a creep-o. I have a few friends who are looking but aren't ready just yet, so might have to wait because with a friend would be a lot nicer!

Oh been following up on he Presidential races quite a bit and what an exciting Elections this will be!!! One a woman and one black, sounds more like a m
ovie. Tonnes of spoofs are out from Mad TV already and Hilary Clinton has been dubbed "Hitlery Clinton", haha. Thank God the Democratic s are back in Power. I can't imagine what the atmosphere must be like during these times. Imagine... A Black President and Woman VP or, a Woman President and Black VP. amazing- movie stuff right there!

Okay well, I shall go be bored and unentertained else where and stop writing books, I nearly wrote one last night, well till I got tired that is!

Once again have a VERY happy Chinese NY
-good luck on the ang pow's to those unmarried -wink
