Happy Chinese New Year

Approaching the Chinese New Year, you may find books about your fate in the coming Chinese year at bookstores near you. If astrology in the western world tells your luck based on your zodiac--determined from your date and month of birth--, the Chinese astrology tells your fortune based on your shio--determined from the year you were born.

Endra and I once sneaked a peek into such book, only to find that according to our respective shio, we were matching to each other. Yay! According to the book, dog (Endra's shio) and tiger (mine) are friends. Lucky us.

Whatever our shio are, may the new year bring us health and prosperity. Welcome to the year of the rat.
