Just saw a happy oz day posting and made me think why not CNY? Any Chinese/Asians or people living in China/Asia out there?

So 恭喜发财!Thats "gong xi fa ca" for those who can't read character or “gong hay fat choy" for those of you from the South.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy NIU (牛) year!

Happy CNY yeah! I'm not Chinese, but I have developed an interest in traditional feng shui. The whole flying stars bit makes my head swim, but I'm trying my best to figure it all out and arrange my home accordingly.

Happy Chinese New Year! I love the celebrations that happen in our local Chinese community and try to attend at least one event - not to mention the yummy food too :)
Have a good one!

Im also a big fan of the food. Always happy to help celebrate, for what ever reason.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Back in the day when my kids were little we would celebrate every holiday, Chinese New Year, Cinco De Mayo, Passover, Hanukah (sp?), Valentines, St Patrick's, you name it I made a huge deal out of it just because. Now I wish I had planned to get take out tonight instead of roasting a chicken. It would have been way more fun, and a lot tastier! turn

sno, you dog, you! i caught that. yer lucky teezy is an expat. to answer the innocent side of your query......ox or water buffalo. and speaking of, they don't make very good eating. we swore that the hamburgers we got in vietnam were 'in country' water buffalo and not imported beef. the french fries were french fried noodles, too, and not potatoes.

a little aside here, ...........in 2011 it will be the year of the hare!


HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!

Don't know a whole lot about that particular scooter. I'd say LPG is the most prominent scooter brand. Scooters have largely replaced bicycle use in Shanghai. Probably the same in Vietnam? I know these were popular for export to the US when gas was over $4/gal. But that seems to have changed now, although they are still cheap, so maybe good for the recession. Why do you ask?

Are you expat in Vietnam?

Happy Chinese New Year :) I might have celebrated it once while trying to study the language when I was younger, but now it's mostly January 1st and the occasional bout with Japanese friends...not quite the same :(

no, teezy. but the guy that i went on r & r to sydney, australia with, fell in love and took a souteast asia discharge, married her and went there to live happily ever after. so, i knew an expatriot and veteran personally.

the reason i asked about scooters is that cfmoto makes a really neat motorcycle looking scooter that i'm thinking about buying for my wife. it has a knock-off motor and cvt transmission. from what i've read, they seem to be safe and fairly durable. there is a huge plant in Zhejiang China that produces them i think under the name huanan or something like that. the same products are sold under a myriad of names for export to different countries. these particular bikes that i am refering to are imported to the US under 4 different names.........same bikes.........4 different brand names. anyway, thought you might know something about them.........like if the Chinese think enough of them to trust their own lives to them.

^I see. Well, I wouldn't base my purchase off of whether or not the Chinese trust their lives with them. The way they operate vehicles around here is quite insane.
