Weekly Photo Challenge: Alphabet ( More Spring Couplets)

Strangely enough, I don’t have many photos with Alphabets; maybe only some with ancient alphabets taken in Egypt and Turkey.

Here are two more Spring Couplets which hopefully would send some good omen around.FullSizeRender

The one on the left is for wishing good health – the first two characters on the top is Body and the lower two characters is Healthy. This is one of the most common couplet posted up during Lunar New Year wishing people Good Health in the coming year.

The one on the right is less commonly seen. The top character is luck and fortune. The second is Cup, the third Full and the fourth Overflowing . So, when taken together, they mean the cup of good luck is overflowing to the brink.

Happy Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year!

Best of Health in the year of the Horse ­čÖéCIMG3706

This is my wish to all readers, families and friends.

Calligraphy of four letters prepared in gold ink and traditional red paper by my calligraphy  teacher Mr. Fung Man Yu for the new year starting today. Top two characters mean body, lower two characters mean healthy.

PS┬á Within this new year holiday period, there won’t be posting until Monday 3 February.
