The cherry blossom lantern
With Chinese New Year just roaring in in just a few days, this seems apt. This one’s from Joey.
“Here’s the Ikea hack I did on the Regolit lamp! I needed a soft glowy light source for the corner of my sitting room, but it has got to be cheapest possible, since we are on a budget….and it’s t.i.g.h.t…so I remembered this lantern from Ikea.
I also take this opportunity to wish all my Chinese readers (and those celebrating it!) Gong Xi Fa Cai^ and have a merry, food and fun filled one. May all you singles out there get lots of angpows* and your uncles and aunties not pester you about your turn to get hitched (and forever lose your right to free money).
^ well-wishes for happiness and prosperity
*red packets filled with money.
