Always Full

No automatic alt text available.

The Chinese will stick a red piece of paper with two words written on it Chang Man or "always full" on rice barrels, ceramic rice containers, or wine canisters,and barrels as very auspicious labels.

This will make the God of Fortune smile on the owners.

When Chinese New Year comes around, all these containers and receptacles will have new paper stickers.

The stickers auger positivity in the homes especially.

This is the signboard of a Miri Chinese cafe. Its name is Chang Man, or Always Full.
