2010 is the Chinese year of Tiger, which falls on 14th of February 2010. This is the same date as Valentine’s day. Perhaps this year we’ve got Tiger in love or a loving tiger? haha…  Well, at least that’s my prediction. You may disagree, of course. 

Indonesian also celebrate this Chinese year. Infact, it became a holiday for everyone, thanks to the late former 4th President of Republic Indonesia, Abdurrahman Wahid (1999 – 2001).  He is also known as ‘Gus Dur’. Because of him, Indonesia now have a day more of its holiday. And, everywhere you can see the celebration. I took some photos of the “Cici junior (little miss)Competition” in Bandung, West Java.

Your Fortune in Tiger Year 2010

Another year is another prediction and another luck for most Chinese. Thus, to know your prediction is perhaps worth to see. Chinese Zodiac uses 12 animal signs to predict people’s fortune. The twelve animals are Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Chicken, Dog and Pig. The 12 Chinese zodiac signs are determined by people’s birth year. “Most of Internet Chinese horoscope sites use Chinese New Year Day to determine the Chinese zodiac sign, which is wrong,” as Chinese fortune calendar claimed.
