恭喜發財

Another one day to go and it will be Chinese New Year! Here's wishing everyone who celebrates Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai (Mandarin). May all of you have a prosperous year!

Here are the (foc) ang pow packets that were given to me. I have yet to fill them with money to be given out during CNY. This new year is the year of the snake but only two packets have snake-related design - one with cute snakes and one with a scary looking snake. I like the pink one best.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Red, Pink, Brown AngPow Packets
Cute snakes design
Scary snake design
****Updated: I did not realise that there are 3 different colour schemes for this pattern until I took them all out. So nice!

    1. I find the eyes of the snake scary. And the smile is very sinister looking too. Hapy Chinese New Year to you and your family too! :)

    2. I just realized I used the same packets you thought scary but I thought it's cute. Maybe I don't have much for comparison. Hehe!

  4. Those are so pretty! Ash told me today that she doesn't like snakes. I asked her why and she said, "They scare me." Makes me wonder what she's seen or heard because she hasn't experienced a real snake. I picked them up and played with them as a kid.

    1. Perhaps she read a book about them. I have seen real snakes in my childhood home when I was a little girl but as they are wild poisonous snakes, I did not pick them up to play with them.

  5. That snake doesn't look so scary!! When I see a snake in the wild,... it scares me and can make me do a dance.

  9. The pink snake is very very cute, it's the nicest snake ang pow I've ever seen. Which company was giving those out?

    1. No, I don't really collect them. I will try to use all of them but usually there will be leftovers. No, I did not get those from Midvalley. I don't think I spent enough to qualify to get those.

  11. Nice collections. I like those without animal designs so that I can recycle them next year :)
    Happy CNY..

    1. The angpow packets usually have animal designs so I can't recycle them for the next year. Usually I will have many leftovers to make lanterns for next year.
