Deepavali decorative lantern

A few days ago, Maybank gave me some Deepavali packets which features the peacock. It is such a lovely bird. Furthermore, I like its bluish purple color.This morning, a customer gave me some Deepavali packets from CIMB. It features the oil lamp and it's red!

Ai, how come the packet is red. I thought red is meant for Chinese New Year! Anyway, I'm happy to have those packets..


Since I have two kinds of the packets, they made a good combination for my decorative lantern. Initially I made only three lanterns as I was rather busy. I hanged them at the doorway. A friend told me that it's better if I could make another two or more. 

So I quickly made another two..That means I have five and I believe Indians love the number 5..


Pre-Deepavali is always a busy time for us as most of my customers are Indians..

Happy preparation to all my Hindu customers and may Deepavali brings them cheer and laughter in their home..

    1. We have not got any Deepavali angpow packets from the banks yet. I remember I've got the purple one last year from Public Bank.

      Delete
    2. occasionally I use some angpows to put in wages for my colleagues so that I can reduce my collections of angpows in my drawers which I have collected over the years.

      Delete
    3. that's a good idea to put wages in angpow..
