What's the silliest thing you've done with your siblings during Lunar New Year?


What does Lunar New Year mean to you? Is it a time for feasting, house visiting, getting red packets or just a holiday? For me it is about "Bonding" - spending time and sharing the fun and laughter with your families, friends and loved ones. Most of us are usually too busy with our individual commitments or may have been living/working abroad. Lunar New Year is the time for us to catch up with one another, to reminisce and strengthen the bonds with one another. This is the time to gather and re-ignite that emotional attachment with your families, friends and loved ones.


In our family, during Lunar New Year, this form of bonding is always fun and at times comes with many silly moments. For example, my siblings and I love pineapple tarts and we will be fighting to see who can eat the most. During our younger days, we would even imitate lion dancing in the house. Now we are too old for it but that does not stop us from joining in the fun with our nieces sometimes.

What's the silliest thing you've done with your siblings during Lunar New Year? Share your stories on HSBC Singapore’s Facebook page and stand to win S$100 worth of dining vouchers from Conrad Centennial Singapore or a festive hamper from DEAN & DELUCA.

Do take this Lunar New Year to spend time with your families, friends and loved ones, with some of these great offers for HSBC Credit Cardholders.
