Chinese New Year is a 15 day festival. In these 15 days, friends send baskets of mandarines and cookies and other yummy stuff to each other. The other day, I received a long box of goodies. In it were 2 different kinds of cookies, a lovely raisin fluffy cake and 2 red eggs. I consumed everything until I realised I should've taken a shot of it. I had left the red eggs for last. In Chinese culture, eggs symbolise fertility and red is the colour of prosperity. Red eggs are usually consumed at birthdays or weddings. For obvious reasons.
So, here are my 2 eggs with a gold nugget resting on top for luck.
