Chinese New Year is all about food

Got home and found a box of yellow-gold wrapped rectangle box on the table. From my “cousin” and insurance agent. That’s how insurance agent or salespeople maintain relationship with customers.

How would you eat this? Use finger lah!

Then there are the food bought for guests (and ourselves) as well as gifts from others. In the Chinese tradition, it’s politeness to bring a gift when you go to someone’s home. Likewise, when someone gives you a gift, you should reply with another gift to that person. It’s like exchanging gifts.

To those cynical, why waste time, effort & money to exchange gifts? You give me Mandarin Orange, I give you back Mandarin Orange. So? I don’t give you, you don’t need to give me! :p

In the abundance concept, money and things are to be spreaded around & they will come back in other ways.
