My favorite song is the one about the God Of Wealth it have been sung so many times before. Even big name HK actors/singers have sung it before.
Here goes one by HK actor and singer Sam Hui(it old like from the late 80s or early 90s)
Here is one from HK singer and actor George Lam(it an old one also from the late 80s or early 90s)
Here is a kid style one, might be from a few years ago.
Here is another version that might be form the year of the pig back in 2007. The pig is dress as the God Of Wealth.
Here is an animated music video of it.
NOTE: There are also Mandarin versions of it, but I like the Cantonese version a lot more.
Here is a Mandarin version anyone want to see it.
