Wong Lai/Ong Lai

Got some really cute CNY ornaments from a nearby hypermarket over the weekend. Pineapples are significant during the CNY festivities, because in Cantonese, it's pronounced as "wong lai" or "ong lai" in Hokkien, which the Chinese relates to as wealth coming to your way. As a typical Chinese person would say... "Fatt Fatt Fatt!"
