Today had lunch at my favorite roast meat stall at this Commonwealth Crescent coffee shop. I ordered roast duck with an additional black sauce hard boiled egg.  I was pleasantly surprised to find a double-yolk egg in it. I vaguely remember the last time I came across a double yolk egg was when I was a kid; when mum came across one while preparing our meals. It's like an old friend, "long time no see" haha.

I am not sure if it is a Chinese superstition but we often hear eating double-yolk egg or twin bananas will make women fertile or bear twins. Some suggest good luck. A search on the internet confirm these superstition exist. However in some parts of Britian it is considered a bad omen. Chinese tend to look with favour anything that comes in pair. It's like you get double positives, in goodness, in luck, in happiness etc. A good example is the "double happiness" sign put up during a traditional Chinese wedding. So I'd like to think something doubly positive is coming my way.
