Ushering in the year of the piggy...

Technorati tags: , , , , , ,

Since in about 10 hours time, give or take (depending on which time zone you're in), Chinese the world over will be ushering in the New Year - Chinese New Year, that it - Walski thought that it would be a good time to do a couple of things.

First, here's wishing all readers Happy Chinese New Year - Gong Xi Fa Cai, Xin Nien Kwai Ler, Keong Hee Huat Chai, Kong Hee Fatt Choy... Selamat Tahun Baru Cina, in other words.

And second, being that it is the year of the Pig, Walski thought that for an aging rocker like himself, no Year of the Pig celebrations would be complete without rehashing this classic music video, from a group called Green Jellÿ (pronounced Jell-O - but for copyright reasons, couldn't be written as such).

It's a rockified re-telling of a classic children's tale...

Incidentally, Walski is up in Penang for Chinese New Year, spending it with the in-laws, on the obligatory "balik kampung" once a year exodus. Fortunately, the other half of the parental equation is around KL, so it's only once a year that Walski and the Mrs. have to brave the highway mayhem - which this year wasn't bad at all for us.

And since Penang becomes a literal war-zone during CNY, there's a good chance that Walski will capture the explosive sounds and blistering sky tonight, as Penangites usher in the new year.

Till then, be safe during the holidays, enjoy but be a little wise when you eat and drink...

Happy Chinese New Year!
