In celebration of the new year of Snake, EAST, Hong Kong has designed a special collection of red packets for friends and guests.

The four Chinese characters, 東成西就 (Dong Cheng Xi Jiu), on the metallic orange snakeskin packet is a traditional New Year greeting, meaning success in all aspects.

We are giving away EAST red packet envelops to our readers.  To enter for a set, simply subscribe to our blog (by scrolling down).  The first 5 will be chosen and receive an e-mail from by 10 Feb 2013.

Hong Kong is one of the liveliest places to celebrate Chinese New Year, with two full weeks of celebrations including a night parade, fireworks over Victoria Harbour, the annual Flower Market and the Chinese New Year Horse Race.
