  3. I don't know the names either. Actually even I knew the names, it's very likely that I had no clue what exactly they meant.

  5. Did you touch the Wealth God and then touch your own pocket to signify a transfer of wealth from him to you? People can also touch the Buddha with many children in the hope of having a child soon.

    The Hong Kong tourist guide taught us this during my last visit there.
