I meant to post this yesterday, but I got busy with stuff and forgot.

Gung hay fat choy!

I always forget that people here don’t celebrate the same holidays as I’m used to, or if they do, they don’t celebrate them in the same way. When I said gung hay fat choy to people here, no one had any idea what I was talking about. If I would have said that to someone from Hawaii, chances are they’d know exactly what I mean.

I was born in 1981, which was a year of the rooster, and it looks as though we’ve once again come around to a rooster year. I remember looking at a chart of dates that told me which years would be rooster years and thinking, “2005? That’s so far from now!”

My how time flies.
