Recyclable #1 (2013)

Yet another month has gone by for the New Year 2013. The Chinese will be celebrating Year of Water Snake beginning this coming Sunday 10-FEB-2013. As usual, the Chinese will be busy paying/ clearing outstanding bills/ tasks before the Lunar New Year for a good auspicious start ahead.

Every other year, I will keep aside/ reuse the new-looking $2/ $10 notes (especially those with lucky 8 in serial no) for red packets (such as CNY 压岁钱 for good luck/ health). Sometimes, I will still need to go to the bank to exchange additional $10 notes for the Lunar New Year. For this year 2013, I am not alone in this green practice. MAS has also issued ‘good-as-new’ $2 notes, along with brand new ones.

Best wishes to all! Happy Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai!  新年快乐 恭喜发财

Year of Water Dragon

The Lunar New Year celebration is coming to an end.

Some green things the Chinese can do are to reuse (those still in good condition) New Year decorations and good luck Ang Pow (or red packets). Remember to recycle New Year cookies containers, old paper New Year decorations and spoilt red packets.

A glimpse at the collectible Ang Pow – the Dragon and Lion in Action for a prosperous year.
