Filipinos traditionally believe that having round fruits on the center table to usher in the new year is a surefire way to encourage good luck for the coming year. This belief is borne in part by the Chinese feng shui tradition.

Feng Shui Master Hanz Cua, in his interview with TV Patrol, shared that it is not just rounded fruits that Pinoys need to serve for the new year to encourage peace, harmony and prosperity for the coming of 2019.

Cua said that it is ideal to have 12 fruits on the center table come new year which symbolize a blessing for each month of the year. He recommends the following:

• Apple = harmony
• Orange = success
• Banana, harmony
• Water¬melon = money (round like coins)
• Papaya = good health
• Melon = money (round like coins)
• Pear = good health
• Kiat-kiat = more money (round like coins)
• Grapes = abundance
• Pine¬apple = success
• Mango = money (color)
• Lemon = drives away bad luck

While rounded fruits symbolize money, there are also other types of food that can usher in good luck for 2019, he said. Noodles symbolize long life. Lechon symbolizes prosperity while pechay, which is commonly associated in feng shui with continued good fortune is also advisable to include in your New Year’s feast. Round desserts such as cake symbolizes unity and harmony while nuts are symbolic of seeds and fertility. (ANGEL ONG)
