Chinese New Year Packet

This the time of the year for greedy little children. To those of you celebrating Chinese New Year every year, you know what I mean, for those who don't, there's always time for a little trivia. Each year, instead of getting colorful wrapped up presents like Christmas, all Chinese kids get the "raw thing" tucked safely inside a red packet. To make things even smoother for the kids, they can rob not just Santa (a.k.a their parents) but also every living adults related to them in any ways, nice, eh? And don't worry if you're hitting 18 this year, you're still getting the red packet until you are married, yes even when you're 40.

So, why don't you enjoy one nice little packet download and share nice things around. Yes, when you're not celebrating, you can fill it with anything and give it to someone nice you know. It also looks good for the upcoming Valentine's day (massage coupons, anyone?)

Anyway, it's the year of the tiger. :)
