Personal Log, Earth Date 7-2-2008 0845GH ...

    This is the first day of this New Year on the Chinese Calendar ...


    Of course, it's not the year 2008 on the Chinese Calendar, nor is it the 7th of February today on this Calendar ... It is, of course, the 1st Day of the 1st Lunar Month -- and this year is the Year of the Rat, based on the Chinese Zodiac. (Get this: "Full of charm, the Rat is the object of admiration. A true sentimentalist, family and friends are close to their heart. Their intellect and foresight bring success with money and work. Rats are constant seekers of new ventures and travel. Compatible with the Ox, Tiger, Dragon, Snake, Monkey and Dog." -- says the Amazon website on Asian Zodiac Poster Year of the Rat: Birth Years 1912 1924 1936 1948 1960 1972 1984 1996 2008).


    But it's OK, we Chinese in Singapore still uses the Gregorian (Western) Calendar just like most of the countries in the world (or in the United Nations?) ...

    Welcome to a Happy & Blessed Chinese New Year (CNY) 2008!


    Now, in this post, I also wanted to start off the CNY with a "Thank You" note to Anderson Che (and others?) who gave us the Avant Browser (now "Version 11.5 build 21", according to the "About" box)  ...
