Gong Xi Fa Cai, Kung Hei Fat Choi or Gong Hey Fat Choy (恭禧發財) means "Congratulations and best wishes for a prosperous New Year!" These greetings are often mistakenly assumed to be synonymous with "Happy New Year!"

The Chinese New Year starts tomorrow. I bet you already purchased tikoy (Nian gao from Hokkien 甜粿, the so called Chinese New Year's cake which is prepared from glutinous rice) and red packets or locally called ang pao which you can give to kids.
