BIG FYI: Happy New Year! Gung hei fat choi!
Greetings, EVERYONE. It is an honor to have you visit this site!
the world alright with you, today? I sure hope so. It depends on how well
we groove with it, I think. This site greets YOU in Chinese because it
seems easy to say and understand while sounding quite elegant. I revisited
the languages site to update and correct my spelling of "Happy New Year" in
Apparently, and in similarity with the USA, Europe, Africa, Latin America, and other places; China has several dialects spanning Cantonese to Mandarin and whatever else, in between. I like that, it builds cultural character and flavor. Click the link to a Chinese New Year celebration and get a glimpse into their fascinating culture!
Actually, I found another saying I like: I love YOU! I put about twelve
translations in my cell phone, already! You can learn to say it in many
different languages by visiting the I Love You in Different Languages site.Soon,
I hope to visit and immerse in as many of our World's cultures and
languages as possible! Until then, this site can point you to some
very kool translation plug-ins...I am trying these: Foxlingo---Babelfish---QTL
Now, you too, can enjoy learning to use the language translators, a web FTP client, and some other tools, services, and plugins that are helpful for updating a site! Still, I greet you with Gung hei fat choi! However, if you find another language to try saying this greeting, just drop an email with a link. Perhaps, some changes to include many other languages will be as interesting.
