Ang Pow Fish Lantern

I’ve got many requests for this Ang Pow Fish Lantern. I’m not too sure why when there are many more other beautiful lanterns that we can do. Maybe because it is a fish and Chinese people like fish? Makes sense? No? Nevermind. Whatever the reason, it is very simple to make this. So fish it is.  Ang Pow Fish Lantern You will need 18 ang pow wrappers for this. Ang means red. You do not necessarily […]

One Utama’s Chinese New Year decor 2014

I’ve always sang praises for One Utama’s festive decors. I’ve complimented them so much until certain parties thought that I’m working with their PR or something. I tell you, I have nothing with them ok? They don’t even invite me for their launches or anything eventhough I’ve supported them for so long *cries silently in a corner* This year as usual, I went mall hopping for the best Chinese New Year decor and 1U was […]

1 Utama’s Chinese New Year decor

This year, we’ve been preoccupied with AngPow lantern making sessions that we don’t have much time to mall hop to check out their beautiful decor.  We finally stepped foot in 1 Utama today to check out their ‘Golden Street’.  The entire Centre Court has been converted into a China Town (actually the streets of Hong Kong) Can you believe that this is actually in a mall?  Look at those peanut tins..  Complete with traffic light […]
