The word for fish in Chinese, yü, is a homophone for the word surplus. As with many other words in China, because of the similarity in their sound, there is a superstition behind it. When it is served it can be both a literal and metaphorical display of surplus. Similarly, to flip a fish over while eating it is unlucky, as it is the same as overturning your abundance (or your boat). This idea is represented here along with the concept of multiple versions of the self, multiple directions and opportunities in front of most people, and the bittersweet reality that you can only ultimately walk one path.
