Gung Hay Fat Choy

The Year of the Monkey commences today~celebrated with some spicy take-away for dinner, after three hours of Wonka auditions.  I was ever so pleased that when I said the title phrase to our two Mandarin teachers today, they both exclaimed "Oh! You have an SF accent."  Guess my years of Texas living haven't decimated what they told me is a primarily Hong Kong accent.

Cheeky little monkey~my latest painting project.  Hopefully the words actually say "Year of the Monkey" and not something vulgar.  At any rate, painting him was a fun project and brought joy to my painting cohorts last week.


  1. My Dad wore a red silk jacket to church.

    You *wish* I were kidding, don't you. He greeted everyone at the door with Gung Hay Fat Choi... meanwhile, another contingent was doing the African garb for Black History Month. It was like watching a car wreck.

    1. Bwa-ha-ha!! SF is a good place for swirls of culture to mix.

  2. Year of the Monkey.. It's my year!
