"Happy new year, may you have your heart's desire."
That's how the chinese wish each other happy new year. It must be admitted that they're far more poetic than westerners.
(oo, I realise now than when I first read it, I understood "may you have my heart's desire"... maybe the chinese are not that poetic, but selfishly pragmatical, a good way to be realistic)
*thanks to Bent for describing this wonderful yu sheng (at least i can read about it)
