|1.||Gong Xi Fa Chai|
If you literally translate "Gong Xi Fa Chai", it would mean "wishing you enlarge your wealth."
Gong Xi: means wishing/blessing
Fa: means enlarge(ment)
Chai: means wealth
So a literal translation is that you wish someone will become very rich, but the phrase is generally used as Happy New Year.
Gong Xi Fa Chai everyone!
