Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Gosh! It's good to be back! I have missed you!

It's really hard getting back 'to work' (read blogging) after a good week's holiday. I certainly enjoyed myself. I hope you did too. I thought I'd better get over the holiday mood and get back to the good ole circle. Besides, today's a good day to 'start work', coincidentally.

Was wondering what to write about this being the first post of the lunar year and then looking at the collection of angpows (red packets/envelopes) an idea came to mind. Thus this image of the new year zodiac animal. No prizes for guessing what animal it is. Or have I got zero artistic inclination? Oh well..

Some people collect stamps and postcards, I have recently started collecting angpows. Kind of a weird whim, I know. But they are so pretty, don't you think? Besides, having them with you also means having all the good wishes that have been bestowed on you.

Hope you have had a wonderful start to a new year. Again, here's wishing EVERYONE a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous Rabbit year.
Gong Xi, Gong Xi, Gong Xi Fa Cai!!


  1. Quite a few of my friends collect ang pow packets too. :)

    Hope you had a blast celebrating CNY. :)

  2. hey, you are back!! so how's your CNY?? hmmm, i totally understand how torturing it is to start work after a long CNY break.. i'm still on leave and am anxiously waiting for the "doomsday" tomorrow :(

  3. hmmm, you collect angpow?? well, i collect that too, but to be precise, i prefer to collect the money inside the angpow, hahaha!!!
