Thank you, shouldn't that be "Comy Fat Choy"? Could be wrong though?

Hi Tez,

Yes and No!... :D

To explain: the Chinese have 400 dialects

so Comy Fat Choy (although, it seems, a word is missing) can be

Kung Hei Fat Choy or Gong Xi Fa Cai in Mandarin

Gong Hei Fat Choi or Gong Hay Fat Choy in Cantonese

From then on it gets even more difficult!

With Respects
