People thought they had the precognition ability. In Chinese, the branch of plum is called "梅梢" which sounds the same as "tip of brow(眉梢)", and the first Chinese character of "magpie(喜 鹊)" is "喜" which means "happiness" and "good news".

Magpie was regarded as a herald of good news, and the first Chinese character of "magpie(喜鹊)" is "喜" which means "happiness", so two magpies mean double happiness. Bamboo and plum blossom symbolize a boy and a girl playing together during their childhood (it's a famous saying coming from a poem of Li bai in Tang Dynasty). So this combination symbolizes "A boy and a girl were playing together when they were children, and they become a perfect couple when they are growing up".
