Happy New Year 兔 You

Gong Xi Fa Cai - Congratulations! You've struck it rich!

It’s the year of the Chinese Zodiac Rabbit and 兔 (which is the character symbolising RABBIT) is pronounced “tu”. So Happy New Year TO you!

Funny phrase Chinese people say to each other during the Lunar New Year is “Gong Xi Fa Cai” (gong hei fatt choi in my mother tongue). It literally means CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve discovered some wealth!

How weird.


I produced an indie music festival in Singapore for 7years before I moved to the US to be with my indie game dev husband Tom who made Axiom Verge and Axiom Verge 2. We live in Los Angeles, California with our son Alastair (named for Alastair Reynolds) and our dog Goliath (named for his size).
