Today, I temporarily place under my drawer the primary concern of growing more subs.
Because today we go Chinese. I mean, I will talk in passing about the Chinese Zodiac as very soon the Chinese New Year will come with a bang on Feb 16, 2018 and end on Feb 4, 2019, the year of the Dog. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Chinese zodiac afficionado nor am I preaching to anyone viewing this video to become one. I have to clarify here, I am not an expert of the zodiac thingy.
I’s just a matter of interest that cropped up today I can swerve my focus for a while.
A few days ago, my family and Me went to our favorite neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant and we had the very familiar noodles and the works served in hot steamy soupy bowl called as PHA, spelled as P H O generously mixed with seemingly fresh picked vegetables. But really, the green leaves are fresh and you have to take it out from its stem.
You said you are talking about Chinese, why now Vietnamese?
Oh okay, I will have to clarify a bit.
It is because when we were served food, the table was made ready with the paper placemats printed with the Chinese zodiac. Maybe because the Chinese new year is moving fast towards us? So that what you see here is the exact placemat I brought home and saved from extinction already, at least until I’m done with this video.
Coming back to the Zodiac thingy.
The Chinese zodiac is a classification scheme that partners an animal and its attributes to each year in a rotating 12-year cycle.
The cycle is an approximation, not scientifically exact of whatever, relative to the 11.86-year orbital period of the solar system planet of Jupiter. Of course, it is the largest planet of the solar system.
The Chinese zodiaky and its variations still remain so popular in several Asian countries mostly the eastern part which include China, South Korea, North Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Mongolia, and those that border China, Russia and India. Just check out your google map for this, as well as in other South East Asian countries like Vietnam, Burma, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, most particularly also using the Buddhist calendar.
Obviously, these countries have large following of Buddhism. Even in the Philippines which is a Catholic country many have become aficionados too, since mainly influenced by the Chinese community.
The Chinese zodiac is also referred to in Mandarin as Shengxiào.
This system have referenced time cycles divided into 12 parts, each labels those parts with names of animals, and each is widely associated with a culture of ascribing a person’s personality or events in his or her life to the supposed influence of the person’s particular relationship to the cycle.
The Chinese 12-part cycle corresponds to years, rather than months. It is represented by 12 animals. The animals of the Chinese zodiac are not associated with constellations spanned by the ecliptic plane.
The zodiac traditionally begins with the sign of the Rat. The following are the twelve zodiac signs (each with its associated Earthly Branch) in order and their characteristics. Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water as nature five elements.
Ying *is bad?” Yang is “good”
Rat – (Yang, 1st Trine, Fixed Element Water)
Ox – (Yin, 2nd Trine, Fixed Element Earth)
Tiger – (Yang, 3rd Trine, Fixed Element Wood)
