  • 2005 year of the rooster

    I am on hand
    to herald in the day
    and to announce it's exit.

    I thrive by clockwork and percision.

    In my unending quest for perfection
    all things will be restored to their
    rightful place.

    I am the exacting taskmaster.
    the ever-watchful administrator.

    I seek perfect order in my world.
    I represent unfailing dedication.

    I am the rooster

    What a great sentiment for ending a year of catastrophe! ... Hope there is something in the Chinese myths.

        That's interesting! Since I have been following this calendar I'm amazed at how accurate the discriptions of people's personalities and about what couples are better suited. My wife is an ox which is my perfect match. I didn't know it at the time but sometimes it's better to be just dumb lucky.... Glad to know a rooster's in the family brian!

          This is the year of the golden rooster according to chinese calendar but it will only start on the 9th of Feb. which is the 1st day of Chinese New Year. Till then this is still the year of the golden monkey.

                Year of the Roster....Cool, I am an Ox....I think they should "Year of the Koi" into the mix.

                      Wait until February? ... No, let the celebration begin now!

                      ....Gives a different meaning to the notion of waiting for the Rooster to crow.

                        Patient my friends. Would you celebrate christmas in nov. LOL.
                        Chinese New year have very special meaning to us, of course for the other ethnic group it is just any ordinary day.

                            No problem Dick. Just want to let those interested have the right understanding.
                            The golden rooster is so named according to the 5 elements: gold, wood, water, fire & earth.
                            There will be very big celebration for the Chinese New Year in S'pore. Koi will get their fair share too. Drawing of them will appear in paintings, greeting cards, red packets( we call Ang Pao), etc...Koi are auspicious fish to the chinese.
