Chinese New Year is just around the corner… to be exact, it’s on 2nd and 3rd and 4thΒ February this year… yeah, it’s going to be celebrated for two days… every year CNY is celebrated for two days. Business will be closed… some may even close for a week… or two… πŸ˜›

Lion dance troupes will be roaming around… yea… tung tung chang… that’s how we called lion dance when we were kids… coz that’s how the drums and cymbals sounded like… tung chang… tung tung chang… πŸ˜€

Yes, lion dance is one of the main attraction during CNY… but there is another attraction which will make everyone eyes glow… the red packet or the red envelope… yea, the ang pau… the kids loves these red packets… coz these packets are filled with money… πŸ˜€

And since CNY is very close to Valentine Day, and if you are running out of time to look for valentines gifts or running out of romantic valentines gift ideas, probably these red packets can be substitutes this time… who don’t love red packets filled with monies?… πŸ˜€

This year it’s the year of rabbit in Chinese calendar… I hope more luck for me this year… and great health too… πŸ˜€

More expensive clothing for the holiday season :(

It seems that, this year holiday season gonna be a little bit expensive… it is all because there is a surge in the price of cotton and yarn… so, consumers will have to pay more for new clothes on this coming Christmas and New Year… πŸ˜›

The worldwide shortage of raw materials for textiles and garments such as cotton and yarn with higher demand for the coming holiday season has pushed the materials prices up. According to Malaysia Textile Manufacturers Association’s CEO Mr Andrew Hong, prices for raw materials had surged 25% to 40% in the past two months.

So, getting new cloths and gifts this time around will be expensive… will there be less new cloths and gifts for families this year?… πŸ˜› I hope not… if that do happen, other type of gifts will be still the same… so maybe less cloths but more on non-textiles stuff like the anniversary gift ideas at Personal Creations.

OK, what causes the textiles prices increased in the past two months? Blame it to the worldwide weather!!!… the flooding in cotton-producing countries like China, India, United State, Pakistan and Brazil had caused the serious worldwide shortage of the raw materials.

So, there goes my dream Adidas clothing… won’t be able to buy new sports apparels this season… πŸ˜›
