Hey you, Mr. 'Fook'



You know it is Chinese New Year when...
You start seeing red lanterns everywhere...
You start seeing "福" ('fu' good fortune/prosperity) everywhere..
You start seeing "恭喜发财" ('gong xi fa cai') everywhere...
You start seeing red and gold everywhere...
You start seeing cookies everywhere...
You start seeing Chinese calligraphy everywhere... 
You start seeing Chinese paper cutting everywhere..
You start seeing horse everywhere...
You start seeing angpows (red packet) everywhere..
You start seeing  bak-gua (dried meat) everywhere...
You start seeing baa-lia.. (lousy/cheapo) CNY-themed TVCs everywhere...
You start hearing CNY-themed music tracks (dong dong chiang) everywhere...

and...

You start seeing more CNY ding-a-ling ornaments displayed at home.
WAHLAU-eh...
