I also want some yummy jiaozi, xiao long bao, baozi, and egg tart.
It's the year of the ox! Here's a little snippet from wikipedia:
The Ox is the sign of prosperity through fortitude and hard work. This powerful sign is a born leader, being quite dependable and possessing an innate ability to achieve great things. As one might guess, such people are dependable, calm, and modest. Like their animal namesake, the Ox is unswervingly patient, tireless in their work, and capable of enduring any amount of hardship without complaint.
(Is this a sign that we're all going to endure hard times with the global economy being the way it is?)
