The year of the mystical creature is here again. Being the fifth in the Chinese Calender, this fastest creature of its time of heaven under the ruler of the Jade Emperor, Yu Huang, was believed to be so busy helping the villagers and the rabbit before arriving heaven for a big feast and thus being 5th to arrive resulting the dragon to be the fifth in the calender. Dragon year is the most auspicious sign in the Chinese Zodiac Calender. The year of the dragon is the only year represented by a mythical character and those who are born in this lunar year symbolize such character traits of great qualities like royalty, innovative, enterprising, wealth, wisdom, courage and power.... On the other hand, the dragons, as pictured in movies like "How to Tame a Dragon" would definitely possess qualities like hot-tempered, tactless, and scrutinizing.
There are 5 different types of dragons; metal dragon, water dragon, wood dragon, fire dragon and earth dragon. This does also mean that it takes 60 years for every dragon year to rotate ... oh god... Lama tu!!
Sayang and I are among the lucky babies being born as dragons for we were born in 1976 (fire dragon) and now we are expecting another dragon this year, the water dragon, which is said to be the most powerful. Remember, water does also mean life.... Unlike the fire dragons. water dragons are said to be calmer. I wished that our baby dragon would be more relaxed than his overreacted parents :D
Seems like being a dragon is a great deal among the Chinese, the world is expected to witness a baby boom scenario especially in the east. It is said that this dragon baby boom would helped countries like Singapore and Taiwan to increase their population. Mmmm and this does also mean that our baby dragon has to compete with other baby dragons. So baby.. remember ..the competition is high and you have to show your very best to be among the best...
Itu kata the Chinese......
For us the Muslims, we are not suppose to believe all these superstitious thingy for we lives have already been destined even when we were in the womb. What makes a person with good qualities are based from his efforts and perseverance towards achieving his ambition and as a Muslim.
So... what ever ever it is... mummy and ayah will always pray for you baby :D
