Lunar New Year is just round the corner. And the year of the Monkey is coming to an end as we look forward to the year of the rooster. Last year, we featured Ang Baos (红包）or red packets with Monkey designs as well as those with generic designs. Many of my readers like you loved those stories. So this year, we decided to make this an annual feature and have managed to get more from Singapore and overseas to feature. So if you are hunting down for the prettiest ang baos for 2017, this article will be a good reference. Likewise, if you are on the receiving end, you will know where your relatives have been shopping by the designs of the ang baos. We had categorised the ang baos from Chicky Ones to Luxury to Simply Elegant for your easy reference.
THE CHICKY ONES
2017 is the Year of the Rooster. So why not give or collect a “chicky” ang bao to remember this joyous occasion. The thing about red packet designs for zodiac animals is that it challenges the creative juices of the designers. Not all animals are auspicious like the Dragon or cute like the Rabbit. We would say the rooster is on the moderate level for this task and with help of some golden eggs and cheesy puns, it does make these red packets worth your collection.
