FarmVille Chinese

Haven't posted about FarmVille in a while...have been too busy doing all the "holiday" (read "Christmas") FarmVille quests and other stuff.  Now the New Year is here, I've put my "holiday" decorations into FarmVille storage, and it is time to farm. I've been in somewhat of a farming rut, and am trying to expand my crop growing into some new crops.  Speaking of which-

The popular online game FarmVille has extended itself to China.

One of the premier FarmVille news sites has done their research, and found several crops unique to the Chinese version:  including "caterpillar mushroom", ginseng, areca palm nut, lingzhi (a medicinal herb) and....peony.

Wouldn't it be cool if we American farmers could have these crops to celebrate the Chinese New Year.  After all, this is supposed to be an international game....which I think Zynga sometimes forgets.  Plus, we do have a Chinese population in this country.  I went to high school with some first generation Chinese, and there are a lot of Chinese in New York City (and other population centers).

And now back to regular blogging.  I've had so much to write about lately, that it ended up with me not writing about anything at all.  I'll try to rectify that, although it may not be for another 2-3 days.
