I was at my in-laws' place and two envelopes arrived in the mailbox. We opened up and saw 5 angpow packets in each.
On the angpow packet was the picture of the Prime Minister of Malaysia with the words " Happy Chinese New Year -The Year of the Snake". (see attached photo)
I opened one hopefully to see some ringgit notes, or at least a one ringgit note or a 10 sen coin or a free voucher for shopping.
Unfortunately, it is kosong.
So, why have the picture of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib on the angpow packet????
Most banks are giving out nicely designed angpow packets for their customers, and rightly so since it is expected money will be inserted. Banks put their Bank names on the packets, but not photos of their CEO.
Mr Prime Minister, whoever advised you to allow your image imprinted on the angpow and then sent into Chinese homes' mailboxes, had done a disservice to you. You are ill-advised. Very ill-advised.
One elderly chinese friend said he felt insulted by this gesture. I asked why. He said if you want to have your photo on the angpow, DON'T send it empty.
If it is to remind who is the Prime Minister, well, almost all Chinese Malaysians know who is our Prime Minister. If it is to tell Chinese Malaysians, that the Prime Minister is the Chinese "taikor", then the angpow packet should not be empty.
And if it is a political election gimmick, then it is a bad choice for a publicity campaign.
Chinese people generally are quite, if not very, superstitious, folks.
I cannot remember having seen any angpow packet in the past with the photo of the Prime Minister imprinted on it or companies giving free angpow packets to their employees with the photo of their boss on it.
Mr Prime Minister, you should sack those advisers who got your photo imprinted on those empty angpow packets.
