In this photo is two pots of flower called 'FooKooy' it simply means wealthy and prosperities. The flower belongs to dry lands but somehow became common in Malaysia. According to Malaysian-Chinese, anything has a relation to red colors or gold represent big money, therefore you can see red and golden in their house and also in their working environment. Architectural designs applied as well together with Fengshui and many more. They don't like you asking them the reason because red and gold is their untouchable culture and money making strategy. *note: Malaysian-Chinese and Chinese are different, so don't get confuse.
