Did you know...

Hong Kong means Fragrant Harbour.

Kowloon means Nine Dragons.

Feung Shui (wind/water beliefs) plays an important role in the design of
all the buildings in Hong Kong.

Temples should always have hills behind them and face the sea for good luck.

Chinese Lucky Numbers are 2, 3, 6, 8, and 9 (8 being the luckiest).

Chinese Unlucky Numbers are 1, 4, and 7 (4 and 7 sound like the Chinese word for death).

During the Chinese New Year children are given "Lai see," lucky money.

People eat Long Noodles on their birthdays for a long life.
