Anna's comment: It is my family’s tradition of getting together on the first day of Chinese New Year. The name of the foods are given in a good sense the Cantonese way, such as:
* Fish – surplus
* Tongue – profit
* Knuckle – lucky money
* Oyster – lots of business

Cantonese enjoy family gathering with lots of dim sum.
This is just part of them. 滿枱點心最開心
Fish Balls (lots of surplus) 髮菜鯪魚球
Pig's Tongue (lots of profit) 大吉大利
Pig's Knuckle (lucky money come the easy way) 橫財就手

Pig's Knuckle in close up 橫財就手
