Welcome The Year Of The Rabbit

I am missing my family back in Malaysia - they have had their reunion dinner last night and this morning, even as I type this, they are heading out with the extended family, a tradition we have followed long before I was born (and that was 40 years ago) to have their first meal of the day together.

To all celebrating the Chinese New Year, here is a direct Cantonese translation, which I thought was most apt:

Wishing you all,
Bunny Arrive Work Done,
Step Step High Rise,
Year Year Got Fish - (prosperity message here!)
One Road Smooth Wind,
Out In Flat Safe,
Smile Mouth Long Open,
Hear Think Work Done,
Dragon Horse Sperm God,
Gong Xi Fatt Cai!

  1. Hoppy Bunny year to you too! Do you give out angpows to the boys? That's a tradition which I'm sure they would love to follow ;-)
