2008 rang in with some interesting moments. Was glad to spend the first few hours of the new year with some close friends here in the city.
So, apparently, the year 2008 is supposed to be a “bad luck year” for all those people born in the Year of the Rat (Chinese/lunar calendar). I didn’t even know of this until I was hanging out with my friend and her friends, and they mentioned how we all needed to go to Chinatown to buy red bands so we could ward off the bad luck on us. I am usually not superstitious, but as a group, we didn’t seem to have much luck today with our adventures.
Maybe it’s just me being weird, but maybe I should go ahead and buy that red band. I didn’t even realize that the Chinese New Year this year is the Year of the Rat; how convenient, isn’t it?
