Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese visitors, except the gender confused reader daniel aka winnie. hehe
Since 1996, Christmas Island issue animals of the Chinese zodiac every year. This year would be the Rooster year.
In Chinese tradition, the rooster is admired as courageous and beneficent, and symbolises reliability, never failing to announce the arrival of a new day. Rooster years were 1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993 and 2005.
Those born in the year of the Rooster are usually good looking and well-dressed. Appearance and status are important to them. Roosters are clever and conscientious in fulfilling their duties. They are talented in organisational work and manage money well. Although good at tackling problems and completing assignments, they are unlikely to be innovators.
Whilst generally kind, rooster people can be critical, frank and insensitive, and may refuse to admit they are wrong. Roosters make excellent actors. In a happy mood they are likely to be the centre of attention. While male roosters tend to be boastful, females are more modest, patient and kind, and do well in any social work.
