Gong Xi Gong Xi

Cooler Becky would like to wish her readers and relatives a Happy Chinese New Year. Her well wishes (with translations) are as follows…

Xin Nian Quai Le!
(Happy New Year)
Gong Xi Fa Chai!
(May you strike gold)
Wang Shi Ru Yi!
(May exactly ten thousand of your plans go well)
Nian Nian You Yu!
(May you have a yearly fish1)
Sui Sui Ping An!
(May there be peace from this age to the next)
Xing Chun Da Ji!
(May the new Spring bring forth luck)
Shen Ti Jian Kang!
(Keep healthy, dude)
Xue Yue Jin Bu!
(Improve in your studies)

…and many more well-wishes besides.

Since Cooler Becky is dedicated to cultural learning and improvement, majority of the posts for the next month will be on various Chinese New Year traditions. Bring your empty brains that you may learn much, young grasshoppers.

Also, Happy Valentines Day to you people who celebrate it. Rassn’frassn’ >.>


1Technically, this actually means “May you have abundance in all good things”, but Cooler Becky thinks that having a yearly fish is just as important.
