    1. I am an Ox!

      Ox : Dependable, calm, methodical, born leader, patient, hardworking, ambitious, conventional, steady, modest, logical, resolute, tenacious. Can be stubborn, narrow-minded, materialistic, rigid, demanding.

    2. I have to say it was a terrible year for Ox as predicted... so I for one will be welcoming the NY happily! :):):)

    3. Me is a dragon. Don't think I am intolerant, certainly not violent! LOL

    4. I was born in the year of the rabbit. The qualities that attribute to rabbit are sometimes surprisingly true.

    5. 12 zodiacs... reminds me of the family joke. My daughter 'dragon' the one soaring in the sky. My son 'snake' crawling on the ground :P

      Happy Boxing Day!! :)

    6. I am the cunning and mischievous monkey..he.he..

    7. I'm a ram (aka sheep aka goat). And what are *you*, eastcoastlife? ;b

    10. Great post ECL. Enjoyed the photographs as well as the information. Happy New Year to come for you and your family.

    11. I don't know which one I am, I'll have to find out. Or maybe I don't want to know. :)

      Another fascinating post ECL.

      PS I've just noticed the similarity between the Singapore flag and the one for Monaco. An interesting coincidence.

    12. Imma rabbit! The things said are kinda accurate LOL. What about you? What's your sign then? ;)

    13. Hmm... no cat? Haha! You know why cats are always angry with rats? Because the Rat sent the Cat to Timbuktu during the race. Thus the Cat missed it! :P

      Happy New Year!
      May the New Year brings more happiness, health & wealth for you & your family. :)

    14. I find the chinese zodiac more true then the one we use. I am a cancer and a goat (ram) my son and DIL are both Lions but in the chinese zodiac they are a tiger and an ox which also fits more.
      I don't believe in these things, but it's interesting to read about and know a bit.
      Thanks for your Christmas wishes. I had a real nice one.

    15. owh...I am rabbit! hehe...most of the descriptions are true about me though. :) but i guess everyone is unique right? hehe..

    16. This is very interesting, so thanks for sharing! I knew from a friend of my wife who is Chinese, that I'm a Dragon :-)
