This year, at the River Hongbao, there is a huge mascot of the God of Fortune and 12 mascots of the Chinese Zodiac Animals and other colourful decorations. There are other cultural exhibitions too and of course food and beverage stalls selling local and foreign delicacies. You can view those food stalls in my food blog.
The God of Fortune holding a couplet reads "Zhao Cai Jing Bao" which means usher in the wealth and riches.
As I was concentrating on which angle to take the photo of the God of Fortune, suddenly there was a guy who hit the gong which startled me. He announced in mandarin that the God of Fortune is here. And there is this chubby "God of Fortune" right in front of me.
He started tossing gold coins and one coin just landed in my hands. Hahaha.....although it is not real gold but the feeling is so good.
Hope this gold coin from God of Fortune will bring everyone Good Health, Good Luck and Good Fortune.
