    Thank you, friend.

    Just a gentle and humble note that besides our dear Chinese members, other

    Asian members also celebrate the Lunar New Year. I suspect that they would

    express this event in their own language, not "Kung hei fat choi [Cantonese]"

    or "Gong xi fa cai [Mandarin]." To make things even more complex, some Mandarin

    speakers (in Taiwan, for example) would spell some of those words in "Gong xi fa cai"

    in a different way. I think (think) that "xi" would become "hsi," etc.

    Anyway, Happy New Year!
