Meet All

There is a Chinese Restaurant in Loughborough with the English name Meet All. It also has a Chinese name 金玉满堂 [jīn yù mǎn táng]. Bǎidù/百度 translates this into English as Treasures fill the home. I have found several references to and applications of 金玉满堂.

  1. The Chinese name of a Hong Kong comedy-drama television series. 金玉滿堂
  2. The Chinese name of a Hong Kong Film 金玉滿堂
  3. An inscription on a Chinese numismatic charm. 金玉滿堂
  4. It appears in chapter 9 of the Book of Dao [道德经] by Lǎozǐ [老子] 金玉滿堂 & 金玉滿堂
  5. Classified as an idiom [成语] by 金玉满堂
  6. There are several registrations of 金玉满堂 and 金玉滿堂 as IDN web addresses. So far I have only found one that resolves to a website 金玉滿堂.com
  7. M-Girls have a song entitled 金玉滿堂
  8. A Chinese Traditional/Classical instrumental 金玉滿堂

金玉满堂 is the Simplified Chinese form and 金玉滿堂 is the Traditional Chinese form. There are differences in the third character only. For the links in the list I have used the same form as the source reference.
