Singapore – The rush to prepare for the arrival of Chinese New Year is a good barometer of what this festival means to families. Chinese New Year is more than just a time when families and friends gather to welcome and celebrate a brand new year over a celebratory meal, it is also an intricate affair that is steeped in tradition to welcome good fortune and health. In keeping with this tradition and to ring in the exuberant Year of the Monkey, F&N Sparkling Drinkshas launched its limited edition Festive Packs, bearing the auspicious well wishes ‘灵猴献瑞’ in keeping with the belief that the clever monkey will bring good fortune in an auspicious new year.
The vibrancy of this festive season is often manifested in an array of symbolisms that signify all things prosperous. The dazzling shades of red and gold, for instance, are believed to symbolise good fortune and joy. Festive delicacies that share the same pronunciation of well-meaning greetings are also served to convey positive wishes.
The happy and cheery variants of F&N Sparkling Drinksare a familiar sight during the Chinese New Year celebrations. F&N Outrageous Orange, in particular, is symbolic of all things auspicious and good fortune, and is a staple in many homes during this festival especially at the dining table and in the living room, thanks to its association with mandarin oranges that are commonly exchanged. The gesture of pouring (倒) sounds like arrival (到), auspicious wishes for abundant wealth for the rest of the year. The limited edition F&N Sparkling Drinks Festive Pack(24 cans of assorted flavours) is available at a recommended selling price of S$12.20 at major supermarkets and hypermarkets.
