Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Now let's hope I have that spelling right and I'm not saying something to embarress myself. Happy Chinese New Year! One of my roommates, and her boyfriend, invited me to eat dinner with them last night. He had cooked a traditional Korean New Year dish. It was a spicy pork stew with carrots and potatoes, served with rice. Really excellent. They told me this is the most important holiday of the year in many Asian nations, and families gather together on New Year's Eve for a big meal. This is the year of the Dog, and I'm not sure exactly the meaning of that. All I know was that I was born in the year of the Dragon. That combined with being a Leo should explain quite a bit;)
