Gong Xi Fa Cai

chinese new year

Its the year of the Rat according to the Chinese Calendar. We have a 4 day weekend starting tomorrow. All offices and business establishments are closed here. The city feels as if its under curfew. Yup, really. Buses and trains are empty and so are the roads. Except the movies, there is not much to do around other than lazing around at home or at some friend’s place.

After work, went to the library today and picked up some DVDs. Enough to keep me occupied over the weekend. Will also have enough time to track the stock market and also read up some stuff on commodity trading that i had been wanting to do for long. Also gym beckons.
