Lucky Goat, Luckier Owls

To Chinese and non-Chinese friends alike, Kung Hei Fat Choi! Only lately did I discover though that being born in the year of the goat/sheep is considered to be quite unlucky. Imagine, pregnant women rushing to have caesarians just so their kids will be born in the year of the horse?

Well, I was born 36 years ago in the year of the goat and I wouldn't consider myself unlucky. It doesn't take very long to look around me and realize that I've been immensely blessed...

Among my blessings are my kids who were born in the year of the owl. You haven't heard about that year, right? Me pagka-kuwago ang mga anak namin. They're wise enough to know how to get things from mom. And they stay up super late, when the rest of the world is sleeping. Adi and Ali are so unlike each other but when it comes to sleeping habits, they really bring out the goat in me -- meme na (a term we Filipinos use to tell kids to sleep), I repeatedly tell them...mmmhhe...mmmhhe...

Well, have a good year of the goat. May it be a calm and peaceful 2003.
