Happy Chinese New Lunar Year 2016!!

Are you a Monkey?? 🙂

(I’m a Dragon, but not to worry, a nice one…).

2016 is the Year of the Monkey (and a fire monkey with that!)!!!

As many of you probably already know in Chinese astrology, each year is associated with a Chinese zodiac animal sign but also (a less known fact) one of the five elements: Gold (Metal), Water, Wood, Fire, or Earth. Both the sign and element of your birth year are said to affect your personality and destiny.

– Fire Monkey : Character would be “ambitious and adventurous, but irritable” –

This year was my first time witnessing a Chinese New Year Celebration in Singapore (and in Asia in general) and I really enjoyed it. I was expecting maybe more traditional lanterns (at least in my romantic mind) but was impressed nevertheless.
