Happy Year of the Ox!

Happy Year of the Ox! (I need to get this out before the Year of the Tiger sneaks upon us...)

The 2007 Lunar New Year post where I mentioned that I loved how banks in California offered red money envelopes.

  1. i thought 2010 is the year of the tiger?

  2. ABC,
    2010 is the year of the tiger. It doesn't start until February. Hence why I said I wanted to get this post up before the year of the tiger begins.

  3. oh yea! you are right! i totally didn't think of that. thanks for clarifying! :)

  4. ABC,
    Ha! Since I'm about a year behind in my blog posts, the confusion is understandable. :P
