What's on your packets?

Red packets or "Ang Pow" in Hokkien is a sight during CNY. Married couples are to give money-filled packets to children as good luck. And for children, it is customary to greet elderly "Gong Xi Fa Chai" and so forth when they are to receive ang pow.

This got to be the most impressive (and probably expensive) red packets I have seen so far this year. From my BIL who get graphic designer to design and print his company's ang pow every year and this year I am lucky to be in Sibu and receive few ang pow packets from him. Very modern looking right?



What impress me the most is that the horse graphic can change to the auspicious Chinese word! 2D effect.

Red means prosperity. 



How about you? Have you seen any red packets that really impress you?

Usually I use back leftover red packets from previous years..

Tell you something, I still have red packets from the year of the dragon, and still using it last year, oh dear, guess I am the type who can't be bothered with using the latest red packets every year :)
