I stopped at TNT (the Chinese food store chain) to grab some miso soup and tofu for dinner. Happily, it’s the big lead up to Chinese New Year right now, so the store was all decked out with their best New Year wares. The store was full of gold and red decorations, all sorts of cookies and pastries, fancy containers of nuts and, of course, all sorts of oranges.
In amongst the red envelopes and the moon cakes, I found a treat we can have on Saturday. Orange Kit Kats wrapped in Year of the Horse decorative paper. YUM. And COOL!
I just love the Chinese New Year festivities – like the big parade on February 2nd – and I really like the superstitions and predictions about the year ahead. So, I’ve looked into what to expect from the Year of the Horse. I looked up the predictions for the year and according to the Huffington Post, I am in for a good year!
Please note: I was trying to find a general overview of the year for everyone. Just clink the link and you can see what your fortune will be. In the meantime, check out this fortune:
Dog: Born in 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958, 1946, 1934, 1922
This should be a lucky year for dogs, notes Ng. Everything from work and investments to relationships are on the upswing.
Work: Work within your natural creativity in the arts, music, architecture or writing. Even the stage is great for you.
Wealth: Use instincts, rather than logic, when making investments — it will help keep your money stable.
Relationships: Consider proposing if you haven’t already, and if you are married, demonstrate more love toward your spouse. Be humble when interacting with others.
Health: Enjoy your good health, but watch out for overeating.
a) I was born in 1922. Heh.
b) I’ll be sure to use my instincts only in my investment opportunities. Heh. No research at all. Also, I should probably start day trading. It’s going to be a good year!
c) I’ll do my best to be humble when interacting with you. And I’ll be nice to Mike.
d) Amendment to the Health section: “…but watch out for overeating, except on Faturdays.”
Now I’m going to find some horses to take photos of.
