  1. Default Happy Chinese new year!


    I will always remember this holiday from that Red envelope event a few years ago and from Jackie Chan adventures, where they were usually talking about one of the 12 talismans that also match the real life Chinese calendar.

    Happy Chinese New Year! Don't forget to say it in Chinese too, or apparently you'll have shamed your family for the year.

    Question: do you follow up with what I translate to "may you get a lot of red envelopes" or do you follow up with "may you have a prosperous life"... There was a debate between a few friends about that. I say the latter (I don't want to provide pin-yin because I'm a poor sod that can't say it right anyway), but some people haven't heard of it. The first one rhymes with happy chinese new year, if it matters :s

    (look how little I know about my language :D...)

    I don't know what you're referring to either (only thing I can think of is "恭喜发财,红包拿来" which basically means "may you prosper...now gimme moolah").

    There are plenty of follow ups, actually. Sometimes it even varies depending on the animal of the year (e.g. I'm seeing lots of "马到成功"; first character means horse).

    A very happy Lunar New Year to you too.

    I live next to a Buddhist temple. This is the first time I've heard a peep.

    What does Buddhism have to do with Chinese new year?

  8. Default Re: Happy Chinese new year!


    Chinese Buddhist temple. This is the first time I've heard anything other than the occasional windchime.

    Ooh. The first one is what I meant by "may you get a lot of red envelopes", but yeah, "gimme monies" sounds more accurate, haha...

    I'm going to pretty much butcher this since I say it in a different dialect and can't read chinese for the love of me, but the pin-yin for the second one went something like "sheng ti jian kan"

    I can proudly say that I managed to read the first half of the horse one. Time to go celebrate my newfound chinese skills.

    Happy lunar* new year

    There are a lot of alternatives. For example, 新年快乐 (Happy New Year), 恭喜发财,红包拿来 (which translates to may you prosper and all that, hand over red packets). From what I understand,马到成功 means work like a horse towards success.


    With that, Happy Lunar New Year! :D

    馬年快樂~祝大家萬事如意,學業有成,年年有餘,平步青雲,身體健康!

  12. Default Re: Happy Chinese new year!


    身体健康 (shen ti jian kang). Means being healthy, so "may you be healthy".
