Two Celebrations In One...

First, it's Chinese New Year today and I wanna wish everyone 恭喜發財, especially at this credit crunch time when we are all feeling the pinch!

And of course, before eating all the egg fried rice and sweet and sour pork, lighting up fireworks, watching dragon dance, greeting 'married' relatives for a chance to get some 利是, and getting all sorts of lucky charms, nothing beats striping off for the occasion! Happy Year of the Ox! 牛年快樂!

Same as the Chinese, today is also a BIG day for the Aussie because it's Australia Day! Hmm, thinking of that, no wonder I've seen so many Australian flags 'appearing' in London today.

Commemorating the founding of the first white settlement in Australia in 1788, today is the official national day of Australia, and from what I've gathered (while I was in Australia), it's traditionally a time for backyard barbecues and cricket, for zinc-smeared noses and eskies filled with beer under the sun! Why am I in bloody England in the bloody rain? Anyway, hope you guys having heaps of fun Down Under!

And last but not least, after a long day of partying, wouldn't it be nice to come home and have someone waiting for you, wagging their 'tail', happy that you're home and finishing your day off with some... you know what I mean =P So pick carefully with this week's ManPoll!

I would want to come home to the guy pictured with the ManPoll explanation. There is something about a guy who is slightly nerdy and still extremely sexy, everything just gets amplified. Brains and brawn make for the perfect combo.
