- Red Packet Hunt -

Chinese New Year.. well its the most important festival celebrated by Chinese all over the world. It starts on the 1st day of the 1st month, as determined by the Chinese calender and ends on the 15th. It is a custom for elders and married couples to bless/give juniors with red packets (ang baos) during the 15 days. Well, "in Secondlife, you pay your respects to stores and in return get Red Packets containing gifts!" Thus, those who don't celebrate chinese new year may hopefully get a taste of this custom in SL, through the red packet hunt.
Modd.G, !Ohmai, tomoto, Love Soul, oyakin are just a small portion of the 43 participating stores that you may "pay your respects to". The gifts are fantastic and is definitely one that you should attempt within the next week or so. Plus, Anya Ohmai, the hunt organiser, has kindly posted a hint cheat sheet here. The hunt is already ongoing and ends on the 1st of March, which is kinda meaningful since Chinese New Year ends about there too XD.

Below are some looks mix and match from some of the gifts you can obtain from the hunt. The items from the hunt are in italic.
