Chinese Zodiac Signs for 2012

When I was young, I always marvelled at how majestic sounding the English Zodiac signs were compared to the Chinese ones. You had the twins of Gemini, the water-bearer, Aquarius and even the fish was called Pisces. They sounded so mystical and grandiose. THEN you have the Chinese Zodiac signs - very Asian, very practical. No mysterious names. The rat is just a rat. And the pig is, wait for this ... a pig. It reminds me of the very creative names of the Hall of Residences at NTU. You guessed it - Hall 1, Hall 2, Hall 3, etc
