in General

Gung Hay Fat Choi

Besides the spammy development, I realized that I have been having more interactions with Chinese though not necessarily with the people living in China. Be it client, interested business associates or newly-found friends, there have been lots of Asians that I have interacted.

A client-turned-business-partner wished me Gung Hay Fat Choi the other day and I am told it meant Happy New Year. So, here am I wishing everybody in general and the Chinese in particular Gung Hay Fat Choi.

  1. Gung Hay Fat Choi!

    Well it doesn't mean exactly "Happy New Year". If you translate it word by word it means:
    Gong Hay = Congratulate;
    Fat Choi = Earning/Winning money

    In other words Gung Hay Fat Choi is for wishing you to earn/win more money in this Chinese New Year :)

  3. I am based in Singapore and I have lot of chinese friends here, and to wish Chinese new year they say "xing nian kuai leh" in Mandarin which translated to English is"happy new Year" and " gong xi fa cai" which means "may u have life be prosperous".
