God of Longevity

Longevity Star Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is the god of longevity or the saint of long life. This old man with a huge forehead is said to be the one who grants longer lives to those whom are worthy.

His name is romanized as "Shou Xing" and in the older format "Shou Hsing" (his name is literally translated as "longevity star").

Hanging this tribute to the god of immortality on your wall may ensure you an extended lifetime.

Gary's random little things about China:

Where's my fortune cookie?

So after traveling to China, you have just finished your first meal in a real Chinese restaurant.
But the bill comes, and the waiter forgot to bring everyone their fortune cookies!
Well, actually not...
You see, fortune cookies did not come from China (at least not directly).
One legend has it in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a Chinese man running a noodle making shop in San Francisco accidentally mixed a bunch of sugar in his dough, and didn't want to waste it. So he made cookies and stuck papers with people's fortunes on them as a novelty.
In the end, it's really the Chinese visitors to America that are confused when the waiter brings them a blob of sugary noodle dough with a piece of paper stuck in it.
