|Pink Lips And Grinning Face|
It is a happy time, except for those who have to dish out ang pows (red packets with money in them).
For these guys and gals, it can be a harrowing period especially when your battery level is low on the money front.
For those on the receiving end, ang pows are not just friends that make you grin from ear to ear, the bigger them are and the more, the merrier, but also what makes CNY delicious.
It is that time of the year that we want to find money in and fu 福 (the Chinese word and symbol of good fortune and/or blessing) on the red packets.
Not empty ones with the face of a politician.
Not, especially when these come unsolicited in your mail box with pink lips and grinning face.
Politicians should not try to intrude into every aspect of the people's lives.
You may have pink lips and a grinning face, but the Chinese don't associate these with CNY.
When the Chinese think of CNY, they think of family reunion, kam (mandarin oranges), food, firecrackers, lion dance and, of course, the stuffed red packets sans pink lips and grin.
