D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens

Happy Leap Day...and a calendar



Happy Leap Day to everyone!!!...This greeting can only use once in every four years. So, what's so special about today? Nothing special to me, besides i fall down two times during my 'heavy' badminton training today...

Above is the Chinese calendar indicates today is 29th February 2008 a.k.a
Leap Day. I don't know if someone outside of Malaysia is using this kind of calendar or not. But as i know, it has a very long history (since my grandfather time or maybe much more earlier). The big number indicates the day of the month. But what's that on the lower part of the calendar???......Well, image below can explain some of the meaning but not all (because I'm not Chinese-educated, so cannot understand every words written there). I just try my best to explain some... :)

p/s:I MAY be wrong...

Every year, every (almost) Chinese --mainly Buddhist, Confucianist, Taoist and Chinese Animist-- family in Malaysia will try their best to get one. My family will not miss one every year as it's just as important as your toilet paper. Every morning, my father will tear a 'number' from the calendar and used it to put the burned fire bud from the God's altar. If he's not around, I will do it... It's a tradition...

Two more pics to share...
