Gong Xi Fa Cai

It's early but everyone is putting their wishes up. It's probably because many are already making their way back home or going away for the long weekend. So I'm jumping on the bandwagon and putting this up tonight.

Happy Chinese New Year 2009 especially to all my Chinese family and friends in Malaysia and abroad.

Of especial mention are Mom Rose and Ivy Low-Yap. The first stood by me with her special kind of love and the second stands by me even when she sometimes can't stand me!!!

In Malaysia, one doesn't need to be Chinese to celebrate. One only needs to be a part of a Chinese family to do so!

For those not celebrating this Chinese festivity, Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For those reading my blogs, I realised that I've never said how much I appreciate the visits, even when there are no comments! So THANK YOU!

Have a super duper weekend, folks!

Have a very happy and wonderful holiday. May this Lunar Year shower upon you and all your loved ones all the blessings of good fortune, good health and goodwill. Your strong sense of some of the injustices of society and governance is a quiet inspiration to the rest of us lesser mortals. Take care.

de minimis: Thanks for the lovely wishes, the loving words. Now sending the same right back at you! :)

Antares said...

Lita, you never fail to moooooooove me to applaud & throw out my arms for a hug! Have a bully long weekend, you guys :-

Estrelita Soliano Grosse said...

Antares: Each time I get a lovely comment from you, I want to hug you too!

What would life be without a note from someone who's got clout!

Hugs hugs hugs! :)

Have a great holiday, Lita. Yes, I visit your site often and appreciate your passionate writings. To be passionate,i.e., to write with heartfelt feelings, is to be human, that Dionysian element that Nietzsche thought is often more important than the cold, abstract or Appolonian part of us.

Hope to see you in the coming Sundays.

LChuah: Thanks for your wishes. I celebrate Chinese New Year. Long story there! hee hee

Thanks for your kind comment. It's like a gift of friendship! I welcome it! :)

Happy Holiday to you. And like you say, "In Malaysia, one doesn't need to be Chinese to celebrate. One only needs to be a part of a Chinese family to do so!" So A Happy and Blessed Chinese New Year to you and your family. And may the Ox brings good health, prosperity and peace all the days of your life!

Dear Lita, I'm now back in my hometown. Please take more pictures tonight at the vigil. Hopefully tonight's vigil is POLICE-FREE... We all are allergic to something called "POLICE"...

Happy Year of OX to u and your family too!

DanielYKL: Thanks and yes, I find that sharing the joy in each other's festivities one of the best ways to spread unity and love!

Mark: It's understandable to miss tonight. I also had some commitments but managed to make it although late.

sanjiun: I really missed you and Sam tonight. I was late so I missed quite a bit. Then when I arrived, I felt like so many familiar faces weren't there. :(

Will do a post tomorow, dear. Take care and sending you my love all the way to where you are!
