恭喜發財 - Happy Chinese New Year

Today is Chinese New Year. The traditional Chinese greeting is Gōngxǐ fācái (恭喜發財), which sounds like Gung-Shee-Fah-Tsai. It means "congratulations, may you become rich."

Cathy and I were married on a Lunar New Year, so we tend to celebrate whichever anniversary is more convenient, although I believe we are biased toward the Gregorian calendar. I think we'll go out for Chinese food today...


  1. I love orange chicken. And those vegetable spring rolls from Panda Express. :)

  2. The nice thing is that spring rolls are made from tapioca, so Cathy can eat them!

    We have much Chinese leftovers...
