Chinese New Year red packet designs 2013

Love the innocence and joy of childhood in the DBS bank's series of ang pows (red packets). Some are even adorned with a rich tapestry of Asian fabrics such as Oriental and batik motiffs.

The POSB series has a  strong Singapore identity. 

Size matters - Big and small ang pows from a design house

The OCBC series using Chinese imagery denoting abundance, fortune and peace  

Majong Chinese New Year pineapple tarts

I can't bring myself to eat this beautiful set of majong Chinese New Year pineapple tarts, a collaborative effort between 2 Hong Kong brands - the lifestyle shop G.O.D - goods of desire and Maxim - a reputable pastry chain. Apparently, these are the best tiles to have in the game of majong. Someone had to help me lay these tiles in the right way as I do not have any idea how the game is played. But I do appreciate the good design behind it :)
