the number 4 is an unluckey number in chinese.the word "four"is a homonym for the noun"death"or the verb "to die."therefore,some chinese prefer not to live at places that have a number 4 in the address.
by the same token ,number s like 14 and 44 r also inauspicious and avoided.some hotels in china now dont even have a 44th floor because many chinese guests would not want to stay on it.
the number 8 ,on the other hand,is a very luckey number.it sounds like the word "geting rich"in chinese,especially in cantonese.there for ,businesses love to have the number 8 in any part of their address or phone number.they believe that the usage of the number 8 will actually bring them good luck and prosperity.in fact ,people will spend more money to buy phone numbers and license plates that contain8.so if u see a license plate that has the number 8 for all its numberals,u can be sure the person is a businessman who spent a fortune for it!similary, a real estate property with an 8 in its addredd will be in greater demand.
the number 6 is also a favorable number.it sounds like the word "happiness"in chinese.
