Happy Monkey Year!

A Chinese blessing for the Monkey Year

This Monkey Year, wishing you five monkeys

the ingenuity of the macaque,

the health and happiness of the monkey,
the leisure and wealth of monkey-kind,
the lightheartedness of apes and monkeys,

and intelligence and wit surpassing the Monkey King.

健康快乐想马猴
jiànkāng kuàilè xiàng mahout
悠闲富贵是猴子
yōuxián fùguì shì hóuzi,
无忧无路比原后
wúyōu wúlǜ bǐ yuánhóu,
聪明伶俐生笋后
cōngmíng línglì shèng sūnhóu.

Happy Year of the Monkey!
