8-foot ‘Fire Rooster’ a major draw at Farley Supermarket

SIBU - A fibreglass statue of a crowing rooster is the latest attraction at Farley Supermarket along Salim Road here – one that has been drawing the attention of both shoppers and passersby over the past week.

Human resources manager of the supermarket, Chew Hock Kheng, said the eight-foot tall ‘Fire Rooster’ was imported from China.

“We put it up on Dec 21,” he said, adding that the structure with its vibrant colours had since become a popular backdrop for those taking photos, selfies and wefies.

On the Chinese calendar, the rooster is the 10th of 12 zodiac animals – each of which represents a year within a 12-year cycle.

The first day of the 2017 Chinese New Year, which is on Jan 28, will welcome the arrival of the ‘Fire Rooster’. Those born in 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993 and 2005, as well as those to be born next year and 2029, are the ‘rooster babies’.

According to Chinese astrology, those born in the ‘Year of the Rooster’ are said to be very observant, hardworking, resourceful, courageous, talented, amusing, always active and popular among the crowd – they like to be the centre of attention and generally, they are seen as attractive people.

They are talkative and at the same time, open and outspoken. They are also regarded as loyal, honest and trustworthy individuals.

Just like the roosters that do not get sick easily, people born under this Chinese zodiac sign are typically healthy. Even when they do become ill, they would recover quickly.

They also are a little sensitive, prone to feeling stressed and having mood swings.

Good career choices for those born in the ‘Year of the Rooster’ are as newsreaders, salespeople, restaurant owners, hairdressers, public relations officers, farmers, athletes, teachers, waiters, journalists, travel writers, dentists, surgeons, soldiers, firemen, security guards and police personnel.
