A Fortune Fish In My Office

001.jpg

The picture was taken in my office. In Chinese we say “Nian Nian You Yu (年年有余)”, which means “Every year there is money in the saving account”. The last word “Yu (余)” stands for “saving” and it has the same pronunciation as “Yu (鱼)” which stands for “fish”. This makes it sounds like “Every year there is a fish”. Therefore every time Chinese New Year comes, we hang a poster or an ornament of one or more fishes indoor and outdoor, to express the wish.
