 Gung Hay Fat Choy! This year is a big year… 2014 marks my last year for RECEIVING lucky pocket money from all of my married relatives. Tradition goes that when you get married you have to give all your unmarried relatives lucky red pocket money. Sigh, in the meantime I’ve decided to give a few little cards filled with my Chinese New Years’ blessings. So here’s wishing all of you health & happiness for always.
