Photos: Pre-CNY Gifts

A little break from the usual beauty-related posts (actually there's also beauty stuff - how can Vonvon not write about beauty, right?)......as it's only 4 more days to Chinese New Year or the Lunar New Year. Spring cleaning is at its maximum velocity now(though I am no specialist in cleaning and chores. ;P), as well as shopping for mandarin oranges, sorting out New Year cookies and gifts to be given to friends and relatives, wrapping 'ang pows' (red packets containing money).......the list goes on............

Anyways, as you know, I am a big fan of Hong Kong TVB drama series and I have been subscribing to Astro On Demand (some kind of cable TV). Every year, before Chinese New Year, I would receive a bunch of discount vouchers, etc, as part of Chinese New Year gifts from Astro On Demand to its customers....but I hardly ever use these vouchers. And this year, again I received an 'ang pow' from them, and this time, it's little red pouch, errr....but not containing money :P, but 4 printed drink coasters with Chinese designs.....something useful at least!








Again, another postcard from Clinique came last week............
This time, it's to redeem the NEW Clinique Lash Power Volumizing Mascara! Well, it's a 3ml sample (very very generous of Clinique!!) as the full-sized is 6ml (RM75). It's available in 2 colors, 01 Black Onyx (which I got) and 02 Dark Chocolate.



OK, back to CNY preparations again..............

Hi Yvonne,

I'm a fan of AOD as well. How come I didn't receive anythings from Astro :<<

Wao... Clinique is so kind to you... I didn't receive any postcard from them before, maybe you are Clinique VIP customer!

Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year to u & ur family...

Vonvon said...

Hi Juli,

Do you subscribe to AOD Dragon Package? cos the gift is from AOD, not Astro. I haven't received any gift from Astro before....only the annoying phone call when my bill is about to due and I haven't paid yet. But AOD is quite good. Check you mailbox....but postal system in this country is very bad....many lost mails.

Which is your regular Clinique counter? As I said, I purchased more Clinique more than I use them...

Happy Chinese New Year to you and you family too! :)
