Nice or Not

CNY 2018 celebration is now over. My friend showed me this ang pow packet made of felt which I feel is quite creepy due to the realistic human figures dressed in ancient clothes. I would not dare to keep a packet like this and my friend laughed at my timidness. Do you like this design?

I feel that the back of this packet looks better.

  2. Yes, I agree with you - the back looks a whole lot nicer. I, for one, would insist that and ang pao must be ang, red but ang and gold is fine.

  4. I agree with your thoughts. There are millions of happier designs and what made them choose this? They lost 2 clients like you and me to carry them...Ha-Ha! Those very realistic paintings nowadays that show beautiful Chinese artisan ladies really attracted many spirits. My sister has one such painting but I didn't tell her.

  5. It looks OK to me but I prefer to have pictures of flowers or animals rather than people. Maybe you are right, it could be creepy since those people are from ancient times. LOL!

    1. But you like to watch scary movies so you are brave with things like this.

  6. oppss....I didn't know these 'ancient humans' in the picture attract spirits...I thought it is just 'art' coz the mooncake boxes sometimes do have these paintings. Anyway, I dun keep the angpao packets, I only keep the $$$...hahaha!

  8. The painting and the colours chosen not the usual red or gold colours of CNY, so definitely not as attractive as the others.

  9. Doesn't look that scary from your picture, but maybe in real life it is different.
