My Chinese New Year Gift, To You — The Character for Tiger

This coming Chinese New Year is the year of the tiger. It’s about being bold and adventurous, and taking risks.

So, I’d like to be a little bold and offer you a gift of my own: a downloadable picture of the Chinese character hu (虎), which means tiger. This is an original, hand-drawn piece done by my father-in-law, who enjoys calligraphy in his spare time.

Interested in getting an original? Okay, let’s get even more bold.

I have five originals with the character for tiger, available for readers. All you have to do is be one of the first five people to comment on this post. I will then contact you by e-mail to get your address, and drop it in the mail — wherever you are in the world, free of charge.

A few caveats:

  • Be sure to leave a valid e-mail address in your comment, so I can contact you.
  • Only comment if you’re willing to provide me with an address. And if you do provide one, make sure it’s valid.
  • The characters should arrive within 1 week in North America, and 2-3 weeks elsewhere.

Happy Year of the Tiger!

  1. After reading your words: “It’s about being bold and adventurous, and taking risks”, I got the interest of the Tiger Character made by your father-in-law.
    May I have one? Thanks!
    Happy Year of the Tiger!

  2. Your father-in-law’s calligraphy is beautiful and I would love one, especially as I am a Tiger!!! Thanks, Laura (another foreign wife of a Chinese guy, living back in China for 2 years now).

  3. Hi Jocelyn,
    great calligraphy! Your f-i-l is really good!
    I would like to wish you a happy new year and I hope the year of the tiger will bring you good fortune in all your undertakings!
    I read your blog often although I don’t leave comments! I’m also a yangxifu, my man is from Shandong and we live in Seoul. I’m never bored with my zhongguo laogong!!!
    Xin nian kuai le!!!

    1. Oops, almost forgot you Elise (been overwhelmed these past few days). Thanks for the comment, and I’m so glad you like my blog. It is always a pleasure to hear from another yangxifu, especially one with a blog — I will add your link to my Foreign Women + Chinese Men list of websites.

      P.S.: I’m never bored with my Zhongguo Laogong, either. 😉

    1. @adam, @Laura, @Melissa, @ellen, @Xuexiansheng, you’re my five winners! Congratulations! I’ve e-mailed you all for addresses (some of you have already sent that info to me). If you haven’t yet, please check your e-mail and send your address, so I can send a lovely card to you. 🙂

      @Don Tai, thanks for the comment — but, unfortunately, I’ve already gotten five responses. You can still download it and print it out, however.
