No it's not a number plate, I have seen the latest, soooo Sydney acronym.
Note to self, CNY09 = Chinese New Year 2009.
I love Chinese New Year, I love practicing what ever little Mando I know (saying 'Kung Hei Fat Choi', 'Sheshe' are the only 2 phrases I know), I look forward to the idea of Chinese New year, I want to buy all things red and even the envelopes (not that i practice the tradition or put money in it).
After reading the latest acronym, I felt that I had been living under a rock. How could I not know! I brought shame to my family.
