Gong Xi Fa Cai to my friends

Gong Xi Fa Cai to all my friends who are celebrating Chinese New Year this year. I am sure they know what is the meaning of Gong Xi Fa Cai. I do not know how to say it in English. A friend told me that Fa means Wealth, Cai means Success. Some of my friends have plan on going to Genting Highlands. I am sure they are eyeing on the Theme Parks and also going to the Casino. Some friends are unable to go because the last minute booking for rooms are not available for them. I know because I have try check for them.

I guess what they can do is just go online and play Casino. It will be easy for them as they have the internet access at home. I know this time of the year they will be gather around to play jackpot and mahjung. I hope everyone has a blessed new year with no worries, no bad moods, no sickness, and happy always. Do not forget to plan your resolution for this year.

My resolution for this year are lose weight, save money, get fit, and eat right. Health is important because even if you have a lot of money you cannot buy health. I will be away for a few days. I will try to online if I able to find internet access at the area.

In the mean time, do not forget about my first contest that is going on til 31 Jan, midnight Malaysia Time.

You got me wrong Sherry...

Actually what I mean is,
Gong Xi=Is to congratulate someone, congratulation,

Fa Cai= wealthy life, success, etc...

Hence,
Gong Xi Fa Cai is...
Something like...

May you have success!
Good day!
Etc...
