1/26    The Google logo on http://www.google.com doesn't honor Lunar New Year.  Hmm.
        \_ Isn't that tomorrow?
           \_ It's today 1/26.
        \_ it's Chinese New Year.   The New Year is not a pure Lunar for almost
           400 years.  While is not very politically "sensitive," it is
           more accurate description, as the calendar was commissioned,
           maintained and issued by the Chinese Imperial Court and funded by
           Chinese tax dollars.  Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese and others
           had no resources nor technology to maintain the calendar like that.
           Back then, Chinese influence was a lot more previlant.

           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

5/19    Is it some cultural chinese thing to never take sick days?
        \_ Chinese New Year Day Off!
        \_ No.  When I was in primary school, my parents used to tell me to
           take a sick day when I overslept (i.e. when they overslept and
           wake me up in time.)
           didn't wake me up in time.)
