My 3rd Bunny Year
February 4, 2011 3 Comments
I never like to celebrate my own Chinese Zodiac Year. Sorry to say this but the Rabbit Year is never the best year for me. I underwent many major changes in my life during those 2 bunny years. In 1987 when I was only 12, I managed to convince my mum and “rebelled” against the MOE PSLE secondary school postings. It was a messy process. In the final minute, my late Ambassador uncle managed to pull some strings and get me a spot at Dunman Secondary – Fatefully (and thankfully), it was where I met Felicia (my future wife). And 12 years later in 1999, I reconciled my love with Felicia in Australia. We (Meijie and Junjie) survived a near-death car accident in Perth. After I came back from my trip, my beloved grandma’s health took a deep dive. She lost her memory and passed away painfully later that year.
Of course, I am not superstitious. I am just being extra cautious. The Bunny Year hadn’t been all kind to me. Age is catching up and my health isn’t as good as before. Family and work is getting more and more challenging for me. This is going to be a really tough year for me without Felicia and Elkan (they have left for a better education and family environment back in Singapore). Already, I am seeing “not-so-good” signs coming my way. Mainly small petty things (in work & my house) that get on to my nerves. I wish to pass this year without any major turbulence or bad surprises. Maybe I should visit the famous Bunny Goddess at the new Playboy Mansion in Macao. I certainly need a lot of good _uck! (“Luck”, I mean).
