Fortune, Wealth & Prosperity

Chinese New Year (CNY) is here again.... today being the 2nd day of the "Rabbit" Year.

Do you know some Chinese like to hang a bundle of Chinese Leeks (da suan; 中国大蒜) together with a cabbage (bao cai; 包菜) in their house during CNY? According to them, they believe such arrangement of vegetables represents "sure count (money)" or "包算" and symbolises fortune, wealth and prosperity in the new year!

On behalf of the It Meows team, Dora would like to wish all Chinese a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
