Last one for the day...
This is one thing that all kids look forward to when the New Year is here! RED ENVELOPES!! (aka, money envelope)
This is such a cute envelope!! By Katwright. From what my parents told me... children and young adults who are not married are allow to receive and those who are married are suppose to give. (My cousin said he'll never get marry because of this LOL) Chinese people (at least my family) give out red envelopes for everything! Birthdays, births, marriage, etc. They don't believe in "presents" like..actual items. Not that they don't believe but I don't think the Chinese are accustomed to "buying" presents. Anyhow, better for me ^^
That is all for today, I hope you like my blog, I'm still working on it. I've been a little busy lately. To all my fellow Asians and all those who are going to celebrate the Lunar New Year, Happy New Year!! Maybe the year of the Tiger bring you many joy, fortune and luck! For all those who celebrate V-day, Have a warm and cozy Valentine's Day!!
