Happy Horsey Year 2014, everybody!
Today is the 2nd day of the lunar new year, celebrated by all Asians in the world. “chu er” 初二, we call it.
I’m not a traditional chinese girl and though I do not believe in zodiac signs or horoscopes, I do appreciate how the designs of our red packets have evolved.
one of the old school ones I’ve received this year. surprise surprise!
here’s a few lovely pieces for the year of horse:
some colorful artsy ones I really appreciate.
cartoony style from Courts- a furniture store in Singapore.
So, ever since 2011, when I first visited Hong Kong prior to the Lunar New Year, beautiful and creative 红包袋 aka Red Packets used for putting in dollar notes of blessings from elders / married couples to their children and the singles had captivated me ever since.
Here’s some Red packets I’ve compiled… there’s more really but I’m pretty tired from a full day of visiting relatives and compiling just these bit. Hope you them! 🙂
for kids. namely best wishes from left top to right bottom: Blessings, Conscientious, Health and Happiness.
some peranakan flowers colorful ones
last but not least… A Christiany one.
May everything you do be Horsay, everything you eat be Horjak, every friend you have and make be Horpengyou, everyday live a Hormia life and work becomes like Horliday in this Horsome year of the Horse!
