Gung Ho Fat Choy*

Well wandering around this morning saw me avoiding many people buring bins full of red paper and having my aural life assaulted by loud firecrackers… so with Chinese New Year just around the proverbial corner, it seems like as good a time as any to wish all our readers a Very Happy Year of the Rooster!

Of course, Chinese is only one of three that are celebrated here in Bangkok – along with Western in December and (traditional) Thai in April. Although I have to say Chinese tends to be my favourite (in indea, if nothing else) – less pointless than Western and much dryer than Thai.

*May Prosperity be with you (I hope, at least)

    BTW…your “Gung Ho Fat Choy” actually means = An overzealous, overweight, Chinese-American. Then again, you already knew that…didn’t you? ;-)
