2006 Doggy Style!!

To all my Chinese peeps out there - Patrick and family, Nell, Gavin, (gosh, Edwin, I still don't know what you are!), TAS and KLPac homies, and the rest of the kaum cina yang meraikan tahun baru cina - GONG XI FA CHAI!! And may the year of the dog not be a dog of a year for you!

My dad is a kadazandusun - specifically a lotud man from tuaran. So we think of ourselves as kadazan, but really, I think we're also a bit of a chinese mix descended from taiwanese aborigine chinese. Once, we visited Taiwan and went on some cultural tour - and the traditional costumes matched the constumes of some of the kadazan tribes in sabah! Some more muka macam kadazan sikit - not the pure chinese look but a more weathered, nepalese national geographic cover photo kind of look.

Then my mum told me that my father's father used to sing an old song which to her sounded mandarin. She found out that there was some legend about oneof his forefathers being a member of a chinese court or something.

So, not only are Panini and I highly likely to be of chinese descent, we're probably royalty too!!! Well, at least royal pains...

Anyway, what does doggy year hold for us all? I'm thinking lots of money, loyal friends and much time to lie around. We can leave all the ball-licking, crotch-sniffing and sweating for the next time doggy poo comes around!

So, have a lovely long break and drive safe!

Lovey, C
