It's that time of the year when shopping centres are decked in red. Chinese New Year is just a month away. As usual, preparations for what is considered the most important celebration in the Chinese community's life includes purchasing new clothings and getting red packets (ang pow) ready if you are married. Another part of the build-up to the festivities is the sending of greeting cards. I am quite a traditionalist in the sense that I like to send and receive greeting cards.

With internet, electronic cards are now more common and acceptable than not. There are many free ecards sites around for instance, Yahoo! Greetings. There is of course, no postage to purchase and no fear of your cards being lost in transit by the sometimes unreliable postal service. Moreover, some of these cards are animated and even comes with "tong tong chiang" music. Just don't switch the volume of the speakers too loud in office when you open it or your colleagues would be looking at you with wide eyes! Ha! Ha! Ecards now offer a free 30-day trial. Check it out! I know I will.
