Kung Hei Fat Choi!
So it’s weekend and it’s the Chinese New Year! I thought spending it at the mall is a great idea though I knew a lot of people would think the same. We went on our way, anyway.
And since it is relaxation that we were looking for, we’ve decided to watch a movie first. Then we went on shopping after.
I don’t really observe Chinese New Year nor buy stuffs that are related to it. But since we were there and we literally got charmed by this local store that sell all these “lucky charms” as they call it, I as well end up having one. I am a February soul so I took well, the one that has my birth gem – amethyst.
The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, giving the gem its lovely purple hue.
