It was odd the way that today, Tuesday the 19th found me in situations where I was seeing things relating to pigs.
I was in the bathroom at a restaurant and it had some of those lame jokes for a person to read, but these had English translations which is sweet.
And here is the first foreboding pig!
Not sure if the English translation is exactly right, but I for sure lose the meaning!
After we ate, we went out and I checked to see if my salary had arrived yet. We noticed that the dirty KTV in the area had changed it's image.
It is now claiming, in Korean at least, to be a "Family KTV." Which is funny, cause it could be called the "Family Busting KTV" for a more truthful meaning.
It was here that I noticed my second foreboding pig.
Like the other pig, this one two is surrounded by questionable English.
The third pig is with me all the time. Jiao Jiao was born in the year of the pig and is damned proud of it!
December 31st addition;
Often times when I get together with people conversations tend to be focused on Asia or worldly issues. This was the case on Christmas day at my aunt and uncles house, the topic was the Chinese Zodiac. I was speaking to someone else when I overheard my mother talking to my cousin about their symbol. I heard my cousin say that she was a boar and my mother replied that she is too, and it dawned on me.
My mother was born in 1959, the year of the pig, the same as Jiao Jiao's mother, and the corresponding years lead us to 1983, where my cousin and fiancee were both born, also pigs. Does this coincidence prove the truth of the Chinese Zodiac? I think not, but it is certainly interesting.
Slightly less intriguing is the fact that my mother was born in April and Jiao Jiao in March. But, in the moon cycle, Jiao Jiao was born two days before the new moon and my mother was two days after.

One last bit of information, my dad is also a snake!
What do you think of these things? I find them very real, especially behavior based on the moon cycle, I see it daily. I thought that maybe women could calculate their menstrual cycle based on the lunar cycle in the day of their birth. If you are a woman, did you menstruate last month in the same lunar cycle as your day of birth?
