Gong xi gong xi!

Happy Year of the Pig everyone! Today marks the 8th day of the Lunar New Year, may this be a good year for all!

Before getting married, I looked forward to receiving red packets of money from my elders. It's a tradition to bestow upon people younger than you with a small token of prosperity. Red packets can be very pretty but these have to be the prettiest I've ever seen:

And with a cute little pig on the front too! These Li Xi gift envelopes are available from Design Night, a lovely website by designer couple Tram Pham and Dominic Andrea.

These pretty envelopes definitely make it much more enjoyable to dole out cash to the young'uns!!
