First, I want to wish the Chinese communities around the world a Happy New Year! It must be hectic to celebrate both New Year and Valentine’s Day in one day. I’m not Chinese (though I’ve always been mistaken as Chinese) but I have a sister who is married to a Filipino-Chinese in Davao and they used to celebrate the Chinese New Year with firecrackers that seemed to be a machine gun fired in the air. This family basically celebrates New Year twice a year, lol! Fortunately, lighting firecrackers has been banned in the city a few years back so I imagined it’s been a quiet Chinese New Year since then.
As you may all know, it’s the year of the tiger in the Chinese zodiac and many want to know what’s in store for the future under this sign. I am not a fan of Chinese zodiac really and to know what year falls under which sign is enough for me. I became a little bit interested in this kind of information when the year I got lucky to land a job here was also in the same zodiac I was born under, the year of the rooster so to speak. But until now it’s rather obscure to me whether one’s luck or success has something to do with his zodiac sign, or the other way around.
Speaking of the Year of the Tiger, I found out a few weeks ago that hubby was born under this sign and he didn’t even know it. Geez, I’ve been living with a tiger all these years! Though it would be a catastrophe if it was Tiger Woods but fortunately and I’m glad it’s just a tiger in the woods I’m living with. And what could a rooster do to fight with the tiger? Not much really, literally. But according to this Chinese Zodiac site, our compatibility is 55 noting a “not balanced relationship”. Don’t know what this means, but in our case, it must be the age that is so much unbalanced, lol!
I am hoping this year would give hubby some kind of luck as when I had my Chinese zodiac sign five years ago. But a good luck on health is the best that I could wish for him at all times.

I agree that the best thing that you could wish for your husband is his health. I know how hard it is to get sick.

I know I’m in the year of the rooster (last I checked at the local Chinese restaurant). I guess my luck isn’t coming back for a bit… 🙁

We’re in the same zodiac. Better not to think so much about it. As long as we’re lucky about our health, it’s luck unnoticed.
Hehe. So it’s your husband’s year this year. Who knows, he may be lucky!
Yes, and I will tell him to play the lottery. Who knows….:-)
Hahaha, naaliw ako, akala ko kung anong living with the tiger yun! Hubby mo pala.:)
