Oranges, Gold Coins and Red Melon Seeds

For certain restaurants, when you have the Chinese New Year luncheon or dinner, they have two oranges with a red packet on the table.

Gold Coins and Red Melon Seeds

What's inside the red packets? Gold coins and red melon seeds.

Anything with seeds, like pumpkin seeds or melon seeds symbolizes "lots of children".
Anything with gold, symbolizes prosperity.

(It has been a long time since my colleagues and I ate golden coin chocolates. We saw it and ate it. It still taste the same! It's the one is enough kind of chocolate. LOL)
