HAI


meaning: winecup, cup(ful)

腹一杯 == harappai == (noun, adverb) bellyful, full stomach, to one's heart's content
祝杯 == shukuhai == (noun) toast, congratulatory cup




Left radical is 'wood' (木), here indicating a wooden item. Right radical is 'calyx/not' (不), here used phonetically to express 'hold'. This character originally referred to holding a wooden winecup or other vessel. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Winecup not necessarily of wood.'
