Happy Lunar New Year!

So this post is scheduled way in advance since I probably am not going to have Internet connectivity at all this day, for reasons of Holidaying With The Nuclear Family. I am probably somewhere in the vicinity of the African continent at the moment (I believe our destination is South Africa), but I thought I would make sure to get some good New Year greetings wishing you all joy and prosperity and other cool stuff like a steampunk Lunar New Year. Good food, new clothes, money!

So, wherever you are, 恭喜發財 to my Chinese readers! I have no idea what dialect ya'll use, so you get the generic Chinese characters to read whatever way you wish; my family says kong hey fatt choi / keong kee huat chye / kong hee wa sai, depending on who we're talking to, but to the rest of you and yours, 新年快乐!

And a special shout-out to Ay-Leen at, hope you have a very wonderful Tết! Chúc mừng năm mới! 


  1. Aw, yay. And happy steamed dragons to you!

  2. Happy New Year to you too! And hope you're having fun.

    (And a small yay to regional dialects).

    Also: 文筆如水,心有成竹. (I think, am badly cobbling together a writing related well wish).
