First of, I hope all of you had a good Chinese New Year (CNY). I'm afraid to say, I didn't have a great one, not even a good one, but a rather dim one.
This CNY was rather blah to me. It's as if the climate decided to contribute it's dark material across the skies this week. It wasn't as hot as it should be. I've never come across a respectably chilly CNY. Something funny and weird about this new year. Something has definitely changed.
And if you think I'm speaking in terms of Feng Shui, well people, no. I don't believe in it (therefore, I don't listen to Lillian Too). I don't read what my horoscopes say as well, although I do read them once in a blue moon, just for the fun of it. I don't believe in the Chinese calendars with the different animals and how those Feng Shui masters tend to predict the future with that and the movements of the stars and moon. Really, I think it's all about you, your choices, God's will and well, God (who could forget?).
Well, aside from the whole Feng Shui story, I also think CNY has lost it's CNY-ness. I don't think most people take it as tradition anymore, it's like more of a routine now. Lose the fancy CNY-coloured clothes and accessories, this could be some normal get-together. There has to be something more to CNY, no? I don't claim to be a ceremonious person, but there has to be something more vibrant about CNY. It's the same old jazz every year. It's getting upsettingly monotonous.
I'm not being emo here, guys. I just tend to be vocal about anything misfitting.
