Chinese New Year contest

Finally I have thought of something for the Chinese New Year contest for my shop:

Chinese New Year Contest:

Can you create something from a stack of red packets?
Get it done and post it with yourself holding it.
The most unique and interesting creation wins an "ang pow".
Contests ends on the 9 Feb 2013.
Consolation prizes too.




Today I was working as the boss had to attend a meeting. Out of the blue, I decided to give some ang pows to a few of my customers so that they could take part in the contest too even though they are not Chinese.


 more pictures here

I allow my staff to take part too..
 See, she has already created a cute handicraft for me!

and here's my creation..
the 6 lanterns all in a row 
at the entrance of my shop


So, can you create something too?
Post it here and you will get an ang pow too!

Give it a try
and who knows you might be the grand winner!

  4. You are very thoughtful to include non Chinese participants. If you stand for elections in GE13 I am sure you will get a landslide winning!

  5. Every year I have so many unused red packets left over and kept them in my drawers. I should make handicrafts to hang inside my house or give them away.

    2. I think I got this habit to give good presentations from presents till ang pows. This must be my training from advertising background.
