Chinese New Year is Coming

In less than a week time comes the Chinese New Year!!

I can hardly wait! Lately I found that not just me, but most of my Taiwanese friends are not in the mood for work. We're all keen on the coming annual holiday. (of course, and the annual BONUS too.. but not me...sob!) Due to the extra month from last year, the CNY comes almost 1 month late compared to last year. It falls on 18 February this year but the holiday should begin by the 17th, 除夕(chu2 xi4, new year's eve), when families gather and have a big feast to greet the new year. (and lucky money put in red envelopes too!)

To celebrate this special occasion, I've made a little card for all of you.

恭喜(ㄍㄨㄥ1 ㄒㄧ3/gōng xĭ) : Congratulations!
發財(ㄈㄚ1 ㄘㄞ2/fā cái) : May you have prosperous fortune.
新年快樂(ㄒㄧㄣ1 ㄋㄧㄢ2 ㄍㄨㄞ4 ㄌㄜ4/xīn nián kuài lè) : (you should know this one)

Wan an!
