It is less a day before Chinese New Year that falls on 12 February this year. As MCO is extended for another two weeks to 18 February 2021, it looks like Chinese New Year will be celebrated differently this year.
We might not be able to celebrate and have family gatherings this year, but thanks to advancement of technology, we can connect over calls or video to people that matters to us : family, friends and loved ones.
During Chinese New Year, one of the Chinese traditions is to give out red packets, hong bao (红包) or ang pow packets to children or family as a form of blessing. This year, I’ll be sharing some of the beautiful 2021 red packets collection. Hope this will be a useful reference for ang pow collectors or for those who are hunting for nice red packets to pack for children, family or loved ones.
AN XIN’S HEALTHY MEAT SHOPPE
To welcome the Year of Ox-picious Ox, An XIN’s Healthy Meat Shoppe (安心肉店) printed a set of vibrant ang pow packets with auspicious Chinese New greetings for its customers. Ang pow collectors can get these limited red packets with purchase of RM50 and above.
APOSTROPHE MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS
The red packets from Apostrophe is one of the most anticipated sets among ang pow collectors. This year, Apostrophe has decided to sell their ang pow packets on Shopee. I think it’s a great move as it gives an opportunity for ang pow collectors to have their beautiful red packets . If you would like to have their ang pow packets in your red packets collection, you can get it here. Good news is, you can also purchase Apostrophe’s previous years ang pow packets here.
