Random musing:

Returning to an old job or workplace is like riding a bicycle; when faced with a risky situation, one tends to fall a lot.

Happy Chinese New Year 2012

leave a comment »

“Genuine” Ancient Chinese proverb (from unmarried juniors to their married or elderly seniors):

恭喜发财,红包拿来

Congratulations and be prosperous, now shower me with money.

 

To all my readers, wishing you:

新年快乐, 恭喜发财, 萬事如意

(which loosely translates to “Happy New Year”, “Congratulations and be prosperous”, and “May your wishes be fulfilled”)

Happy Chinese New Year 2012!

In no uncertain terms

Random musing:

If you are told something “in no uncertain terms”, doesn’t that literally mean they’re not sure either?

Random musing:

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but a falling tree or boulder would surely kill me.
