蓮子Lian zi (Lotus seed)

Today in Chinese class, when studying the word 蓮子(Lotus seed), the teacher told us,”  lotus seeds are associated with Chinese weddings because 蓮 means “continuous” and 子 means “son“, so 蓮子 also means  “continuous sons” which  symbolize the continuation of family’s succession  .” That is awesome  ^^ . Other interesting thing is :

An apple can be a visual pun for peace because the Chinese word for apple (pingguo 苹果) and the word for peace (pingan 平安) are both pronounced ping.Wow, now I easily understand more this drama quote from my childhood film还珠格格 Huan Zhu Ge Ge –Princess Pearl .
