Reading for the Day: KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!

Today’s post will be something of a “fluff” article.  That is, it will contain nothing of profound political, social, or emotional significance.  Instead, this is a post in which self will attempt to divine her future (which, self is sure dear blog readers will agree, should be of tremendous help in self’s negotiation of the reefs and shoals of outrageous fortune —  in other words, of self’s negotiation of her all-important life)

In Section F-1 of  yesterday’s edition of The Philippine Inquirer is an article entitled, “Kung Hai Fat Choi:  Rat’s Luckiest, Sheep’s Worst.”  The article begins:  “Surely it’s the year of the ox but people who were born under this sign should not be all that thrilled because the year would not be a walk in the park for them.”

It then goes on to say:  “Tigers are next to the rat in terms of luck this year.  They would be lucky in all aspects, from career to business to love life.”  This is just great, for son was born in the year of the tiger.

What’s in store for hubby, self wonders?  For he was born in the year of the sheep.  Not only is he a sheep, he’s a wooden sheep, which sounds terrible but isn’t as terrible as being an iron sheep (so self’s Chinese friends assure her).  Here’s what the article has to say about hubby’s prospects:  “For the sheep, it’s not their best year since they’re the enemy of the ox.  Sheep’s worst year can be countered by using a middle man which is the rooster.  A rooster figure or image would be their lucky charm.  Roosters would also serve as sheep’s best partner since they are soul mates.”  Too bad self wasn’t born in the year of the rooster; she was born in the year of the

Dog:  “Dogs, among the signs, are the ones who can get rich easily.  Dogs are also the only ones who can face the north direction bravely.  He can face financial crises or difficulties easily.  Dogs are also known to be polygamous.  The more women or men they have, the richer they get.  They are also stingy to loved ones, even to family members, but for themselves it would be first-class all the way!  Famous people who were born under this sign are Lucio Tan and Manny Pangilinan.”

Now that, self is sure dear blog readers will agree, is quite an interesting horoscope.  If that were true, why is self not now rich?  Or polygamous?  Or “stingy with loved ones”?  Why is she not traveling first-class on Asiana, instead of going for the 12-hour stop-over in Seoul to save $300 on her round-trip ticket?  Self likes that she is in the same category as Lucio Tan (at last!), but she has no idea who Manny Pangilinan is.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
