Chinese New Year is gonna be early this year! With exactly a month to go until Chinese New Year, it’s the time of the year where I’ll shop for gifts for house visitations.
When everyone has a hectic schedule, it is so rare to be able to gather with friends, families and business partners. That’s why I wanted to select the best gifts that symbolize my sincere wish to them for an auspicious and smooth sailing year ahead especially during the trying times in this economy condition.
In conjunction of the Red Fire Monkey year, Coca-Cola has released fiery hot designed cans that are full of auspicious symbols and well-wishes, perfect for conveying auspicious greetings to usher in the new year with.
A positive start stems from a positive mind. Since I heard that the year of Goat will be a challenging one, I would want to dedicate a can of Coca-Cola with specific auspicious wish to my friends and family members according to relevance. This will be a special touch beyond the general wishes like Gong Xi Fa Cai.
