Leaving the year behind

Leaving the year behind

Tallboy is looking forward to 2017 – it’s the year of the Rooster. In Chinese mythology, roosters are more motivated than any other animals in the Chinese zodiac, and we see a lot of similarity with Tallboy. They’re hard working, multi-talented, and can deal with a variety of jobs. And while we’re looking forward to what 2017 will bring, we can’t help but have a quick look back at 2016. After all, the common name for a rooster is a cock. Enjoy the best of 2016 and in our best Chinese, Gong Hey Fat Choy!
