Wag Kumain ng Pusit, this Chinese New Year!


Walang diet diet kung swerte ang pinag-uusapan, hala sige lamon!

You are what you eat and when the stakes are high you need a sprinkle of luck and charm so in this coming Chinese New Year of the Dog, start eating these and avoid the rest. Let’s get lucky, people!

1. Noodles – Noddles symbolizes longevity or long life so do not cut them, slurp in between breaths.

2. Oranges (kiat-kiat, tangerine or ponkan) – Filipinos have elevated this Chinese tradition by collecting 12 round fruits to symbolize money and the 12 months of the year.

3. Whole Chicken – Chicken symbolizes family but some Filipinos think of chicken as a bad omen too. ” Isang kahig, isang tuka”, lalo na pagsabungero, so go for that duck or roast pig instead.

4. Pomegranate – is a sign of unity and fertility because of its seeds

5. Sunflower or Melon Seeds (not the white ones) – it symbolize fertility too, kaya pala ang daming chinese sa mundo.

6. Chinese Pudding (Tikoy) – symbolizes a more prosperous new year.

7. Dumpling – symbolizes luck and years so the more you eat the more lucky and more years you live.

8. Whole Fish – symbolizes abundance, don’t take off the head

9. Egg Rolls or Spring Rolls – they looks like bars of gold and symbolizes wealth.

10. Do not eat White colored food – White color symbolizes death in Chinese Culture

11. Do not eat Squid – is a symbol of badluck or change of fortune.
