Friday Frolics - The Modern Chair Test

I've started work early this week but since it's still Chinese New Year, and the fast pace has not caught up yet, thought I'd pick a really easy personality quiz today. Find out what your choice of modern chair says about you.

Incidentally, today is the 9th day of the Chinese New Year. No, I didn't hear the sound of firecrackers last night but lots of fireworks past midnight.

Happy Friday, everyone! And if this is your first visit here in the new year of the Goat, Happy Chinese New Year.

My chair choice says I am Content..

You Are Content

You are modest and humble. You don't think you are better than anyone else in this world.

You are a people person and very community oriented. You never forget where you come from.

You are very in tune with your surroundings. You immediately pick up on the vibe of a room.

You want to live a peaceful life. You don't have time for toxic people.

The last quiz: What's Your Valentine's Day Personality?

Happy Birthday on this 7th Day of the Lunar New Year

Today is the Seventh day of Chinese New Year, a day traditionally known as Rénrì (人日, the common man's birthday), the day when everyone grows one year older. It is celebrated not only in China, but also in other regions influenced by Chinese culture. Some traditional families serve Misua, a Chinese type of angel hair noodle, or noodles to ensure long life.

Read more about the 7th Day and what people do on this day.

No, we are not done with the Chinese New Year celebration just yet. Remember this is a 15-day festival and we are only at the halfway mark. Some of us yum-seng (toast to success) and lo-hei (Prosperity Toss) every day of the celebration until the very last day, i.e., on the 15th day, which falls on March 5.

Enjoy while the night is still young.. :D

Good days to start work in 2015 after Chinese New Year

The Spring Festival or more commonly known in this part of the world as the Chinese New Year is just days away - 1st day of the 15-day celebration begins on the 19th.

Some would have already called it a year and have started their trip back to their hometown over the weekend. Some are still not sure when to commence work after the long holiday.

If you are someone who sort of is concerned about starting the new year on the right footing (who doesn't anyway), here's a guide on good days or auspicious dates to start work after Chinese New Year.

That chart below provides not only the dates but the best timing as well, together with info on which animal to avoid which day.

I don't have info for best colour(s) to wear this year but I remember reading that red is the colour this year but then again, red is THE colour for Chinese New Year. You won't go wrong wearing red, right down to the unmentionables. :D

Happy Chinese New Year of the Goat!
