Well, it's already Feb 14th over where we are; a day to both celebrate Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year, it's one of those rare occasions where both festivals fall upon the same date, almost as if the heavens are aligning and smiling down from on high.

Let's celebrate Valentine's Day!

Much prosperity and congratulations and happiness unto you! 恭喜发财

*flutters in a stabs random people*

*Stab!* You! Fall in love with that one.

*Stab!* You! Fall for this person over here.

*Stab!* You! Fall in love with that rock!

But but... it's a rock! :smalleek:

Trog said DO IT! :smallfurious:

*sigh* <3

Trog's work here is done. :smallamused: *adjusts Y-fronts and flutters off*

And that, my friends, is pretty much the sole reason that I wish I were living in China right now. :smallbiggrin::smalltongue::smallamused:

Gong xi, gong xi. Thanks for the red packets, randman.
Hope you can be in China to celebrate New Years, and receive lots of little red envelopes, cycoris.

恭喜發財,利是逗來,伍毫嫌少,壹蚊唔愛
Roughly translates to; "gong xi fa cai, now give me a red envelope, fifty cents is too little, don't want a dollar neither".


This is relevant to this thread's interests.

So, who wants to confess their undying love for me then?

Also, Wikipedia tells me it is now the year of the Tiger. Hmm... I approve of this.

Meh, going on 3 decades of VD alone, so CNY is all I care about this weekend.
