Five Signs That Chinese New Year is Coming

Hey everyone!

Looks like it is that time of the year once again where we chinese people get to divulge ourselves in loud chinese music, mandarin oranges and be obsessed with the colour red. Yes. Chinese New Year is coming.

Unlike previous years, I know that I would usually draw a wallpaper in conjunction with the festive holidays but I have not been drawing those since last year. This is due to the sudden increase of lactic acid in my finger muscles that has been impeding the efficiently of the motor functions in both of hands.

Simply put. I got lazy.

Anyway, year after year, there has been a certain trend on how to tell if this Chinese New Year thing is creeping up on you. I would know because I have done countless years of research by observing the obvious surroundings. There are many signs to tell you when Chinese New Year is just around the corner and you do not even need a calender to tell you when.

Here are the five ways to know that Chinese New Year is coming.

Thank you, research!

That thing. You know. That burger thing.
It is just impossible to get that burger any other time of the year. What cheeky marketing.

What other signs are out there to know when Chinese New Year is around the corner? Let me know in the comments section below!

Really though, is there any way to get that prosperity thing in June? It only magically appears in the early part of the year. Same goes to those mandarin oranges and 'bak kua.'

I'm not saying what thing is that because a certain fast food restaurant is not paying me to advertise for them but hey you know what it is so I guess it is still free advertising for them.

Really this is not a sponsored post.


Have a great Gong Xi Fa Cai ahead!

Reality About Fuel Prices

Hey everyone! It's Thaipusam! Happy Thaipusam to all my Hindu friends!

Holy shit it's been awhile since I've posted anything new on this page. It's already February and I just realised I only posted a grand total of ONE comic last month.

I'm not even sorry.

But honestly I've been really busy with random stuff which is most probably a third book and some other huge projects that I have no idea if it will work out or not. But that is a story for another time.

Anyway, a bit of good news for regular folks like us at the beginning of this year. Fuel prices are at an all time low so which means our petrol budget can finally be reduced! Hurray! (though this is actually bad news for the entire country's economy considering we are an oil rich country)

So, with the drop in fuel prices, other prices of stuff drops too right?

 No. The answer is no.

I tried questioning the waiter.

Bird's the word.
**translation**: "Fuel prices have dropped! Why is it still expensive??"

Damn these restaurants.

How to win like this?


Have a great week ahead.
