CNY-Rat-3

Another custom is the decoration of windows and doors (mainly in the living room and common areas, never in the bedrooms) with red paper cut outs and texts. The texts mostly revolve around prayers for wealth, good fortune and longevity. I was also informed that pineapple shaped lanters are widely purchased - the word (pronounciation) for pineapple in local language/dialect sounds something like "money come in". This lady might be having some trouble selecting a suitable print.

What an excellent portrait, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: The timing was lucky, Ray.
It makes for a nice photo Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I thought so too, Frank.
This is a really lovely portrait!
Ayush Basu: A slightly different background for this portrait, Elizabeth.

She is having a good ponder over this..
Ayush Basu: There seemed to be quite a few options, especially in sizes, shapes and budget, Chris.
A fine portrait. I wonder what she finally chose?
Ayush Basu: To my eyes, they are all the same, Bill grin

I enjoy a slice of fresh money come in Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I think that's what the Chinese community also says quite often, Chad.
Well, this reminded me of a stand-up special by Ronny Chieng, where he says that the standard greeting for the Chinese new years are, "Hope you get rich"!

Well, hope you get rich... smile
Ayush Basu: Yes, they do, true enough. They also have other new year wishes smile
The background is perfect for a portrait. A bit of cropping and this would be beautiful.
Ayush Basu: I agree with your inputs, Mary.
A very fine portrait Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It was quite on the spur of the moment, Brian.

I love the DoF . Perfect smile
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you like it, CherryPie. smile
She seems to be happy about the process, Ayush, no matter how hard it is to choose. Choices Choices Choices.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I think she is up to the challenge. Mind you, I understand none of the scripts /languages seen here so they are all the same to me.

This is a wonderful portrait of the lady, I hope she was able to take something home she really likes.
Ayush Basu: Overall they look the same, but it is the script and the text which might make some more meaningful than others, Astrid. I hope so too.
lol well i toooo would have trouble selecting a suitable print!! but that goes without saying smile
I really like this picture, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I understand none of the scripts/languages seen here so they are all the same to me, Elaine! Thank you very much.

I have the same problem when the stock on offer is too plentiful.
Ayush Basu: I should mention I cannot read any of the Chinese texts and characters, so I really have no clue on selection, Louis grin
Too many to choose from! In the Chinese calendar I'm a dog - when my next year?
Ayush Basu: They are in 12 year cycles and the last dog year was a couple of years back, so the next one is 2030, Tom grin
