Ah, the year of the Rat is official over and done, and I'm already missing Mr Rat. Overall it was a pretty good year for me, lots of ups and downs but I found my current job and met lots of very nice people along the way, some whom I've grown very fond of.
It's also a little sad that the next time I'll get to see Mr Rat again, I would be 36 years old =_=;; and the year 2020. The thought of me being 36 is frightening to me. I know I'll have to go thru it eventually but thinking about it now and what the *toot* I'll be and what the *toot* I'll be doing is totally beyond me.
So anyway, one habit I have is my love for reading all those yearly chinese zodiac guide on whether Mr Rat will get married, Mr Moo will get moving, Mr Tiger will have an affair, Ms Rabbit will find a pot of gold and so forth. And it's finally strike me that out of so many of them says different things that left me utterly confused.
So anyway a few years back 2007 if not mistaken, I remember Lilian Too saying that the Rat (that's me) will have a secret benefactor during a TV seminar. In the end, I became someone secret benefactor when I was robbed. Sheesh! That sorta turned me off reading Lilian Too's stuffs, anyway she's usually selling stuffs that poor people like me can't afford anyway. No offense to her many fans out there that swears by her stuffs. It's great that her tips works for you.
So anyway this year, while some say it's not a good year for the Rats, I guess it'll be okay. Dad always says that if we do good karma, we'll get good karma so we won't have to worry too much. Karma the universal law of cause and effect. Yay!
So anyway according to Joey Yap
"While there are many changes afoot, the Rat will receive help from Noble People. You will enjoy smooth relationships with others, with minimal troubles. Where your career is concerned, you need to stay in your current company this year. Help from others will elevate your stature and improve the situation, especially for those of who have more experience than you. They will be able to offer plenty of useful assistance and advice."
I hope so Mr Yap! For my poor piggy bank's sake, I hope so! Help me Noble People, help meeeeee! *ahem*
That reminds me, I've always wondered how old Joey Yap is. Judging by his face, he's so young looking. I'm almost dying to know what skincare he uses. *Hearts over eyes* I really want to meet him but his seminars are usually in KL or overseas and I'm guessing that if I do go to one of his seminars, I might have to eat only Maggie Mee for a month. I kid you not.
Moving on, this time according to The Star Newspaper;
You’re not as lucky as last year. There are several unlucky stars influencing the Rat. However, there are still eight favourable months ahead. Your luck in career and wealth is good, but not in love and health.
Ash: I happened to like last year but if it can be better, then all the better
Career: You have a lucky star this year. Your boss will appreciate your talents and you will get the promotion you’ve been eyeing. But it won’t happen if you don’t fight for it. For merchants, bankers and sales people, you will make more than sufficient money.
Ash: Aww hell, the only time 'muh boss' notice me is when I did something wrong and by saying I have to fight for it, I fear it really might be a physical fight one with either me or him with a black eye.
Oh wait, I'm suppose to be positive and not jinx myself so, LOVE ME BOSS, LOVE MEEE!
Love life: Rats are not lucky in love this year. For married people, you’ll have frequent quarrels with your spouse. For those in love, it’s not a good time to push the existing relationship to the next level. Your love interest could have a change of heart. For singles, set aside some time for social life and you might find a new love interest, but do not expect things to develop rapidly.
Ash: Bah, another non marriageable year. I swear that if I don't marry by 30, I'm becoming a female monk in Tibet whether my dad likes it or not!
Health: You’re vulnerable to accidents and diseases. Too much pressure and lack of sleep might lead to poor health. Go for an annual medical check-up.
Ash: I'm already suffering from lack of sleep thanks to my lack of sales. Sheesh!
Take note: Remember the old Chinese saying: Having good health is good luck."

So anyway, I know that all this cannot be taken literally, word for word, money don't come without effort and hard work, unless God decides to telegram some money down to you. Just like Tarots, take it with a pinch of salt. Do good and good will come to you. That's what I believe, so to everyone of there, Happy Moo Year and have fun!
