CNY in the making :D

I have that Trrrraaaaaak troooong chiaaaaaaaang playing in my head the whole day today! 
I guided my colleague to make an angpow lantern and LoL, that girl almost fainted! Come on, she has NEVER done any lantern in her life and instead of letting her deal with some simple ones, I gave her the PRO ones *evil laugh* :P
Can you see her getting a little frustrated there? Muahahahahhaha.. :P
Finally, she DID it! Congrats Finas! :D
With that done, I went shopping and got all of the above! Beautiful tassles from Daiso at RM5 each, red staples and gold string. I am now in full gear to start AngPow lantern making and this time, they are gonna be beautiful with proper materials :D
Time to wake the dragon, lion, rabbits and all. Chinese New Year is coming!
