Pineapple lantern

My customer told me that she's making pineapple lanterns for her office and she needed lots of red packets. At that time, I had only a few to spare. Next day, she came back and asked me for green packets. 

I asked, 'What for?' She replied, 'Oh, it's for the pineapple lantern!" So I dug out some Hari Raya green packets and gave to her. Then she told me that she wanted to make a pineapple lantern for me. I had to give her some red packets. Actually the total has to be 50 packets. 

Then, the next day again, she came and gave me the pineapple lantern. It's so beautiful and I brought it back to my home to brighten up my living room.

focusing on the lantern

I just hanged it below the fan
for
"ong lai'

My customer came again to see me and asked for more red packets. 
I gave her more pieces and she is going to make another one for me 
so that I can hang it at my shop.

Thank you, my dear customer!
You are so kind!

  2. Having my dinner in one of our favorite restaurant and its full of nice lanterns of different designs like at least 30 of them hanging all over the ceiling. Apparently they were hand made by the lady bozz using angpow packet and other accessories and are for sale at RM180 each. Both sweetie mango & Bananaz was like 'huh'..eat rice dunno rice price? haha.

    1. I 100% agree on that. Very seldom there is customer so good to a shop owner. So, I believe you are a very good shop owner, until your customers are so good to you.
