2014 is horse year 马(mǎ)年(nián)

How many of you  are born in horse year ?

And how many Chinese words or phrases can you think of related to 马(mǎ)horse ?

Introduce three idioms for expressing your new year wishes to Chinese

 

The most popular one (super hot now )

More commonly used  idioms

车水马龙(chēshuǐmǎlóng):crowded with people and vehicles

天马行空(tiānmǎxíngkōng) :  a powerful and unconstrained style or your ideas are very talented

快(kuài)马(mǎ)加(jiā)鞭(biān)  do/ run /ride very fast like you are riding a horse

一(yì)言(yán)既(jì)出(chū),驷(sì)马(mǎ)难(nán)追(zhuī) : once I say it , I really mean it, like a promise ,you can really count on me .

 

So you have any other words/idioms ?

 

To sum up, I wish everyone in 马(mǎ)年(nián)2014

一(yì)马(mǎ)当(dāng)先(xiān),快(kuài)马(mǎ)加(jiā)鞭(biān),马(mǎ)到(dào)功(gōng)成(chéng),马(mǎ)上(shàng)有(yǒu)一(yí)切(qiè)

  I was born in the year of the monkey myself, but apart from picking stuff out of my butt and eating it, you wouldn't know.

Thanks, this is my year! I am excited about it but my wife does not want me to tell anyone because people will be able to figure out how old I am. LOL!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
