Please translate "Gong xi fa cai"...

Pronounciation:
Gong - Kong (G in chinese has a light K sound)
Xi - Si (X in chinese has the S sound)
Fa - Far without the R sound
Cai - Chai ('a' as in far)

Literally:
Gong Xi - Congratulations
Fa Cai - Prosper

So the whole phrase means congratulations and be prosperous.

Thanks Jason for the lovely postcard of Aberdeen! Are you still on the booze?

THANK YOU JASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the post card we received - 007 is still on the booze!!! And, since there are only 5 bottles of Scotch shown on it - I take it the 6th arrived (back to you) in time for your birthday!! I really like the critiques on the front of each bottle!! I think we'll go for the Tamnavulin since you said it was "smooth and ???????"! (Sorry the second word is smudged and I'm blind...) ;)

If you want a post card or five or six - send a PM with your address!!! I can send them to Jase007 somewhere in the UK - but not sure they will find you...

ps: All the bottles made it intact - not one neck torn off! Amazing considering the US Postal Service!

I seems like this has turned or turning into "Operation Isa needs booze/beer". Where do I sign up? Do existing postcard members enjoy automatic membership?

Great to hear they turned up.
I'm off the booze as of today - yeah and if you believe that you will believe that the beerman is my long lost twin from the virgin brewery.
well i'm sunning myself in Stavanger (norway) for the next three weeks if you'd like a card sent (same terms and conditions) but with the cost of booze here just a fraction higher than the UK (3 times higher) it should have something readible. But no garantees - by the way nice and warm today we broke into the positives

I just might be persuaded to believe that one... Not the "off the booze" part - just the virgin brewery part!

That's a hard question, but I think the answer is coming to me slowly... Ah, there it is... SEND POST CARDS, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!! ;)
