In Chinese, the gourd is called hulu (葫芦). The first character (hu 葫) has the same pronunciation as (hu 护) which means to protect or guard and it also resemble the pronunciation for the word (hu 祜) which means blessing. Thus, gourd is symbolised as a charm to ward off evil and bad luck. As gourd contains many seeds, the Chinese also associate it with “Hundred sons, thousand grandsons” (百子千孙). The gourd, therefore, symbolizes fertility which is an important aspect of filial piety to the Chinese to have generations of descendants to carry on the family line.
The Ruyi (如意) is one of the Eight Chinese Treasures which was a sceptre which represented power and authority. The name "Ruyi" is usually translated as "as you wish" or "in accordance with your desires". The word "Ruyi" literally means "everything goes as one wishes". It's one of the most favourite words of the Chinese people and the ornament of Ruyi (usually made of jade, a symbol of good luck) is widely used in decorative motifs all around China. "Ruyitou" or "the head of a Ruyi ornament" symbolizes "everything goes according to one's wishes". In Chinese culture, sweet corns symbolize growth and increase which can be used to represent good health and wealth increment. Sweet corns are one of the lucky food which is favourable by the chinese during Chinese New Year celebrations due to their auspicious meaning.
