Talking Chinese Lucky Numbers Huge Business!

Reading up On these numbers I got the Bug : And was able to Snag one the Only number Domain left on this List

Any Opinions Thoughts , Knowledge on any of these # s ?

289: Easy long-term prosperity, mostly in south east China and Hong Kong
5: me, myself
518: I will prosper
5189: I will prosper for a long time
516289: I will get on a long, smooth prosperous road
5918: I will soon prosper
6: easy and smooth
7: together
8: sudden fortune, prosperity
9: long in time

五一六二八九.com 516289.com

"I will get on a long, smooth prosperous road"

Many Chinese believe in lucky numbers. Mostly base on the pronunciation of number itself. These numbers can be anything, day of the year, house or apartment numbers. Phone or license plate even serial numbers on money bills. This is way beyond the fact most of the price tags end with 98 or 88. Such number are not FengShui based but people just love them. Here are some examples:

168: a road of prosperity or be prosper together. Many areas in China, charged telephone service numbers starts with 168 (similar to 900 number in America but has nothing to do with sex), the company who provides the serve are definitely getting a road of prosperity when you call them.

289: Easy long-term prosperity, mostly in south east China and Hong Kong
5: me, myself
518: I will prosper
5189: I will prosper for a long time
516289: I will get on a long, smooth prosperous road
5918: I will soon prosper
6: easy and smooth
7: together
8: sudden fortune, prosperity
9: long in time

Some times not so attractive numbers can become attractive when form a phrase:
48: 4 sounds like 'death', when placed in front of the prosperous 8 becomes 'determined to prosper'. Not bad at all for a new year's resolution.

Many Chinese believe in lucky numbers.
I looked in to Chinese lucky numbers over a
year ago, and according to the Chinese people
I have corresponded with, most of them do not
understand or recognise the long number combo's
such as the one's you have given.

These number combo's are, from what I gather, a
kind of tradition that is really no longer understood
in China. Of course, numbers such as 6 and 8 are
consdered very lucky to the Chinese, but combinations
aren't well known at all and, it has to be said, all of the
6, 8, and any other number, domains were taken a
LONG time ago.

I hope that helps...

Arabic numerals are still preferred over chinese characters for numbers. Beats me as well. ? ?

Dun really know, but Dave's 八八八.com and single digits are good. 八三.com and 八百.com also sounds good.

四八.com -> this is an unlucky number.

死 is the verb 'die' in Chinese (i think it's a noun in Japanese, not sure). The noun death is 死亡 - uses 2 characters.

The Exclamation character '吧' or 'ba' has exactly the same sound as the character eight (also 'ba'). Note: even eight ('ba') does not share the exact sound as prosper ('fa').

So '4' + Exclamation is.... :o

Nope, you will start prospering...

That quote is more correct than touchring's interpretation. Lucky numbers have to be read in Cantonese, not Mandarin.

168 is the best to Cantonese and Mandarin, but they can still be interpreted differently sometimes. If you want to be very sure to prosper and be rich from now on, you need this:

一路发.com

To make sure you also be rich in Ascii world, you need this:

YILUFA.com
