Happy Chinese Valentine's Day!

I just received this great Chinese Valentine's Day car from a supplier:

Dear Jonathan,

Chinese Valentine's Day is coming which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, namely the eleventh day of August this year.

It's originated from a folk tale of the Niu-Lang (the Cattleman) and Zhi-Nv (Girl Weaver the Goddess). According to the legend, these two young lovers were infatuated with each other. They were deep in love as to neglect sleep and meals, and even their own work. However, it is never possible that a mortal is allowed to fall in love with an immortal. Eventually, due to the fury of the God of Heaven at these two lovers, they were restricted to meet each other once a year; and this date is the seventh day of July in Chinese calendar.

Here D--------- would like to thank you for all the support. May you have an enjoyable and sweet Chinese Valentine's Day with everyone you love with.

Mornings like this, I realize how lucky I am to work in an industry where it's about Girl Weaver the Goddess and everyone you love with, not just port fees and injecteion-molded plastic. Happy Chinese Valentines Day everyone!
