the dragon passed by our floor last January 26 :)
Hehe. Super late post. :D
It was my first time to witness a dragon dance. Sa office pa. Aliw. We hung ang pao envelopes from the ceiling, which the dragon "ate" one-by-one, in an order determined by a feng shui expert. (Pag kinain ng dragon yung ang pao envelope mo, swerte yon para sa'yo.)
Happy Year of the Ox! Sharing the 2009 'precautions/predictions' write-up for the Year of the Pig people (which I got from my officemate):
"Though the year of the Ox may not be a fantastic year for you, it will be better than the year of the Rat. There will be strong indications of movement. This will imply that you might be moving house, running around to get things done, travel frequently overseas or even relocating to other countries. No matter what might be the case, this is going to be a busy year for you. There might be some obstacles such as having direct conflicts with people and having to find yourself fending on your own. The good news will be that there will not be many people who will deliberately try to hinder you from your goals. Due to your tight schedule, you might neglect your health and will tend to fall ill easily. There will also be indications of being attacked by animals. You will also need to pay attention to your elders’ health and safety. Apart from neglecting your health, you might also not put in enough time to spend with your friends and family. Due to this, the bond between your friends and family might weaken and this might cause unhappiness and dissatisfaction of your behavior from your friends and family. If you are in a relationship, this will also cause tension. Your wealth luck is below average. Your expenses are high but your sources of income will not seem to increase correspondingly. You should try to maintain a low profile this year and be conservative in your approach. Pace yourself in terms of what need to be done and take breaks in between. This will enable you to prolong your stamina and not get burnt out."
Hmm... "indications of being attacked by animals"? Yikes.
