Here's something Tiger related. Chinese people refer crossroads as the "Tiger's Mouth". Operating business is mostly considered a no-no, or else suffer either minor or dire consequences.
In my home town, there's shop selling lights and lamps specialties for almost a decade and a half, which was considered not bad. They decided to close down and move on. Then someone took over and open a cyber cafe plus restaurant, which was quite ambitious and full of potential. The cafe closed shop after just 4 months of operation as there was hardly any customers.
And then came an owner opened a vegetarian restaurant, and boy, how it shocked me.
The restaurant prospers, and I have never seen it so lively and never ending supply of customers come flooding the shop that situated in the so called "Tiger's Mouth". Must because of how holy it is to open a vegetarian restaurant to ward of fierce spirits, yes ?
Somehow, it saddens me how most Chinese still believe that Tiger is bad, while Dragon whoring all the lime lights. I don't see any wrong about being borned under Tiger year. Every general description I read about Tiger zodiac, it just...nothing wrong it. Oh well, maybe I just sad when my mom told me how less babies borned under Tiger's sign. Here's the blessing in disguise, I don't need to fiercely compete with others.
3 weeks to go to welcome year of Tiger, my year to be exact. Here's an early of live long and prosper to you all. Make it a good year despite of current chaos that we are having. Oh who am I kidding...
