After another somewhat rocky year of the pandemic with new variants emerging and a very devastating flood to end the year, Malaysians seemed to rejoice by spending time with their loved ones during festive seasons. Malls were quick with their festive deco turnaround – with the CNY lanterns filling up the concourse space as the speakers play Gong Xi Gong Xi Ni Ya. Too soon? Never.
Chinese all around the globe are also looking forward to welcoming the year of the Water Tiger. As such, adults will be visiting the bank in time to get that newly printed mint ringgit note to insert into Ang paos.
Giving out Ang paos as an elderly/married couple is one of the pillars of tradition during Chinese New Year. Some folks would go to the extent of collecting interesting and unique Ang pao packets which come in an array of shapes and sizes ranging from simple plain traditional ones to intricately designed colourful ones with collaborations with cartoon characters and even with big names.
As we gear up towards the lunar new year, Angel Brand, a leading and trusted sauce and condiments brand is joining the Ang Pao collector’s bandwagon featuring an Ang Pao design which mimics the shape of a traditional Chinese Eight Treasure Box (八宝盒). In modern times – the box consists of 8 savoury delicacies symbolising the gift of good health, wealth, and prosperity. Angel Brand’s special take on this year’s Ang Pao comes in 3 auspicious colour variants of Prosperous Pink, Yummy Yellow, and Offering Orange.

In Chinese, the number “8” is pronounced ‘Ba’, which sounds similar to the word ‘Fa’, which means to make a fortune. It carries the meaning of prosperity and success, which our society today enjoys being associated with.
With this unique and highly collectible Ang paos, we hope to usher in the new lunar year filled with prosperity and good fortune. Heng ah! Ong ah! Huat ah!
