新年快樂! Happy Chinese New Year to all who celebrate it!

Year 2010 is the year of the Tiger, or rather Taiga from Toradora! as some will have put it that way. While I am not familiar with Zodiacs, Tiger is often associated with power and bravery.

Again this year I am not able to enjoy Chinese New Year with my family back home as I am in the UK, but I do hope everyone else are enjoying their day, and Happy Valentine's Day for those who celebrate it as well (which I don't, but hey it's on the same day as CNY this year which makes today more special than other years - I heard a lot of couples have arranged to have their marriages to occur on this very day for this reason)!

Here's a picture from Ngee Khiong's MG Acguy review done quite some ago to finish things off ^^:



  1. HAppy CNY Q :D
    give me angbao ^^

  2. A happy Chinese Lunar New Year to you!

  3. Happy New Year Buddy! I'm sorry you're unable to celebrate with family, but I hope you were able to enjoy the holiday all the same!

  4. Happy Chinese New Year!
    LOL at the gundam. :D

  5. Happy Chinese New Year Q ^_^ Hope your exams went well!

  6. Frohes Neues Jahr!

    I was born in the year of the rat.Looks like I have to look out to be not devoured by the Taiga ^^

  7. Gong Xi Fa Cai mate.

    Didn't celebrate it with my family this year as I had to work. Sad really but wat can I do? :(

    This year is kinda special in a way because I was born in the year of the Taiga, I mean Tiger. xD

  8. Happy Chinese New Years. I wish the best to you and your family. :)

  9. @ moemoekyun:
    Happy Chinese New Year to you too~

    How can you expect red pockets from a stranger like me? Go ask someone else! (laughs)

    @ Jacques:
    Happy Chinese New Year to you too!

    @ Apt-1B:
    It's been like that for many years, and there's no real holiday for Chinese New Year over here in the UK, but it's ok. This year is quite possibly the last year by myself (at least for the time being), maybe I can get to spend time with my family more next year.

    @ radiantdreamer:
    Happy Chinese New Year!

    Haha Acguy sure is funny, and he is very poseable too (despite its stubby appearance)!

    @ robostrike:
    Don't want to think about those right now, but Happy Chinese New Year to you too!

    @ Blowfish:
    Frohes neues Jahr!

    Ah I see you're a rat (laughs). Do be careful of the larger animals, and in this case does that mean everybody other than the rat people? (laughs even more)

    @ Optic:

    So you are born in the year of the Tiger? That tells me a good deal about your age now (laughs).

    Not being able to celebrate due to work can be annoying, nonetheless I do wish you all the best for this year!

    @ Tommy:
    Thanks for the good will mate. Happy Chinese New Year to you and to your family too!

  10. Happy CNY! Wish you a healthy and prosperous year ahead!

  11. Hi Q,

    Thank you for your visitation and your great tips. I'd like to take this opportunity also to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year. :)

    Gong Hei Fatt Choi!

  12. Happy Chinese New Year. Cute girl ^^.

  13. @ B-Mecha:
    Happy Chinese New Year to you too! I wish you all the best for this year!

    @ softz:
    Thanks for coming by as well! Hope all goes well with your first figma, and of course Happy Chinese New Year to you too!

    @ AS:
    Happy Chinese New Year! Taiga is pretty popular with a lot of anime fans, and since her name is associted with "Tiger" I thought a picture of her in Chinese dress is fitting for this post.
