Food & Recipes

MANILA, Philippines - With less than two weeks left before the Year of the Water Dragon, the Chinese (and other believers of Chinese superstition) are beginning to plan their Lunar New Year menus, which revolve around attracting good luck and deflecting negative energy.

A dish or food item is considered "lucky" either because of its appearance, or the way the Chinese word for it sounds. The Chinese word for fish, yu, for instance, sounds like the word for riches and abundance.
