happy chinese new year people. i just got home from the CNY festival in octagon (just 5 mins walk from my place). I (ofcourse with some friends) waited until midnight to see the 'fireworks'. it was amazing to see everyone just gathered around octagon since 6-7pm and celebrate CNY together. now thats the spirit. and ofcourse its a saturday night, a night for us the kids to go out and have a drink. school's going to start soon (this monday actually), so i could see students (80% of us here in dunedin = students) were trying to enjoy their 'freedomness'..huhu
ok back to today's post, as the title says.. it will be something on animals. Top of my list is MONKEY (i dont know why..huhu).
