"Lucky" food - bread, bun, wonton, dumpling - the shape of ingot

It seems that each day of the 15-day of Chinese New Year celebrations, is supposed to symbolize something. And now I know that the 2nd day is dedicated to eating ingot-shaped wontons. Ingots - money used in ancient China must be such a lucky object that some of our food take after them in shape. Here, an ingot-shaped bun...

stuffed with char siew filling; and

my ingot-shaped wontons with a video on how to wrap them.

Let's hope by eating some of these "lucky" food, we all turn lucky this year. ^0^
