Pi Xie (辟邪; to avoid evil spirits in Chinese) is a Chinese mythical hybrid creature considered to be a very powerful protector to practitioners of Feng Shui. It resembles a winged lion. Pixiu is an earth and sea variation, particularly an influential and auspicious creature for wealth. It is said to have a voracious appetite towards only gold and silver. Therefore traditionally to the Chinese, Pixiu has always been regarded as an auspicious creature that possessed mystical power capable of drawing Cai Qi (財氣 wealth) from all directions.
It's the time of the year when spring returns to the land of China. Here's in Singapore, it's raining almost every for the past few days. However, the weather didn't dampen my mood. In fact, I'm to looking forward to CNY for the first time after I started working, I'm finally able to take a long leave to celebrate Chinese New Year. Having more time and energy these days, I'm able to do more than just spring cleaning. This time round, I even managed to paint the toilet ceiling and walls at home. Another plus point was that I managed to make some minor changes to the geomancy at house for better harmony and fortune. I think my wife would be proud of her husband. Lol....
This is the year of the rabbit and since the pronunciation of 'Bunny' and 'Barney' sounded similar, I should use this toy for this CNY special post. Apparently, this lovable Barney toy doesn't belong to me but my kiddo. It was sold at the location venue of 'Barney Musical Castle' when it was held in Singapore (Downtown East) back in year 2005. It stands approximately 6" and made by soft-vinyl material (Easier to keep than soft toys). I love the big smile on Barney and most of all the 'I love you' song at the end of the every show that teaches children to be loving towards friends and family. The kind of aspiration we all want in our family.
Just want to wish whoever celebrate this festival a prosperous bountiful bunny Chinese New Year. Huat Ah! : )
