Golden Tiger is the zodiac for this incoming Lunar New year.

So naturally, various souvenirs with Golden Tiger shaped and drawings are everywhere to be seen.

I believe, this year will be a very good year after all that happened last year.

Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Lunar Calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Ancient Chinese New Year is a reflection on how the people behaved and what they believed in the most.

I took these shots with my trustee SIGMA 20mm f.1/8 lens, even though Nikon just announced a sparkling brand new  AF-S Nikkor 24mm F/1.4G ED, I shall not be tempted! (Actually, it is simply too costly for me, suggested price is US$2.200!!!) :D

For my non-Chinese friends, do you know what zodiac year you were born in? :) Would love to hear from you!
