It seems that in the past few years, we have developed a habit of going to Chinese style teahouses in Hong Kong to eat snacks every new year’s day. The happiest process is that many teahouses will change their usual snacks into very auspicious names to place orders. Some restaurants will be very considerate at home, fat house run, windfall on hand, round and round, etc. These auspicious words are followed by a bracket to tell you what kind of dim sum it is. In some restaurants, you have to ask the waiters by yourself. Of course, these must be true Cantonese. The fun my family finds in it is that each person has his own favorite auspicious words, guesses what it may be, and then cradles his neck to wait for what he sees. It’s estimated that it’s a game that those of us from other parts of the country enjoy, ha ha. The house full of gold and silver is one of the things I’ve been through. I’m in a very good mood on the first day of the lunar new year!
