恭喜發財 (wish you rich), 身體健康 (wish you healthy) , 心想事成 (wish your wishes come true), 出入平安 (wish you safe and sound), 財源廣進 (wish your wealth keeps coming), 青春常注(wish you beautiful), 兔年行大運 (wish you best of luck in the year of the rabbit)!  OK, I think I cover all the blessings that most people would say to each other.  HAHAHAHA. 

 I was going to make some vegetarian dish today but I had so many meetings that I really had no time to make anything.  For breakfast, I had plain ramen noodles.  So I considered myself fulfilled the tradition of being vegetarian for at least the first meal.  Mom should be happy about this 🙂 I could have continued to be a vegetarian for lunch, but I couldn’t resist the Sushi at work today.  I had some spicy salmon maki rolls.  It was not bad. For dinner, I did Chinese take out as I had no time to cook (ya, more meetings after dinner).  I ordered Beef Negimaki appetizer, Sesame Chicken, Pork Fried Rice, and large Wonton Soup.  So combine what I had today, I had fish, chicken, beef and pork.  Even though the food was Americanized Chinese food (aka fake Chinese food), I covered it all 😀 I couldn’t ask for more.  And tomorrow, Chinese New Year Day 2, I’ll treat myself a great piece of steak and a bottle of nice merlot 🙂  Life is good.
