 Long time ago, in the period of the Three Kingdoms (220-265)? commander caocao was on a expedition. The weather was extremely hot and nowhere to find the water. The soldiers were thirsty and tired , some of them suffered heatstroke and fainted on the road. The rate of marching slowed down. CaoCao noticed this and worried about losing the chance for combat. Suddenly he got an idea. He drove his horse to the head of the column and pointed with whip, said:“look! There is a big plum forest ahead, the plums are ripe, sweet and delicious.”hearing about this, the soldiers’ spirit was roused greatly.CaoCao grasped the chance and ordered to march full speed ahead.

With the nonexistent plums, CaoCao lead his soldiers walked out the predicament, arrived the battle ground with good spirits.

Chinese idiom: (wàng méi zh? k? - literally "anticipate plum stop thirst") Thinking of plums makes your mouth water and stops thirst.

Meaning: Living on fancies. Living on hope.
