As you all may, or may not, know.. Chinese New Year is when everyone speaks in really weird and indecipherable language, usually 4 Chinese characters forming some kind of blessings, aimed only to please elders in the holy name of tradition.
Being far away from home this year means I have no one, but myself and the loyalty of this blog, to master the art of four-ery with.
And while having my scrumptious lunch, like all Spring lunch should, I finally chanced upon my blessings.
"Nian nian you yu"
Directly translated to be: May there be fish every year. Chinese New Year translation to be: Prosperity year after year.
Weird, no? Now you're nodding..
Here's a toast to a great year, success and independence..
.. and a merry woman.
