2012 The Year of the Dragon

Thank you again for your continuous support and friendship. May the year of Dragon bring golden opportunities and fruitful rewards your way. We look forward to a prosperous Chinese new year as we go into the year of the 2012! The coming 2012 year of the water Dragon is just about the corner.

In contrast to European dragons which are considered evil, the Chinese dragon is a kindly creature that controls over water, rainfall & thunderstorms. It’s brought rains to the farmers but also punishes those who are disobedience to their parents.

In Chinese daily language, excellent and outstanding people are compared to the dragon while incapable people with no achievements are compared with other, disesteemed creatures, such as the worm. A number of Chinese idioms feature references to the dragon, for example: "Hoping one's son will become a dragon" (望子成龍, i.e. be as a dragon).

The Dragon symbol of the 2012 year is an potent intelligent and laborious worker who never puts aside work though sometimes this leads him to excesses. The water Dragon has enough courage to face challenges and easily finds weak points that stand on his way to success.

Note :
Since you cannot keep a dragon, maybe you can keep an arowana. The picture show an arowanas, in Chinese, is called "Kam Lung Yue", or Golden Dragon Fish. Arowanas are popular aquarium fish in Asia. It is a majestic fish that the Chinese believe will bring a steady flow of fortunes and success in business.

I believe that success and fortune is a result of our diligence and blessing from the Lord.
You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail. (Proverb 19:21. NLT)
