With Chinese New Year a few weeks away, there’s nothing better than going for your annual Chinese New Year shopping haul. Although it may not be the same this year with the COVID-19 pandemic going on, this should not stop us from doing our shopping. There’s online shopping for a reason!
If you are on the lookout to collect CNY items, we have kept a special eye out on these limited edition products associated with CNY or the year of the Ox that’s now available on the market.
Here’s a list of CNY limited edition items that you can consider purchasing for your loved one or even yourself!
1. Apple CNY Airpods Pro
If you have not upgraded your AirPods, good news! Apple has launched a limited edition pair of AirPods Pro that comes with a charging case with a newly designed ox emoji. But, you got to be fast!
There are only 25,400 pairs of the Year of the Ox AirPods and they are exclusively available in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia. Each customer is only allowed to order two units, so do not even think about hogging it!
2. Monopoly: Lunar New Year Edition
If you love board games, you’re going to love this one!
Since this CNY will be celebrated at home with closed loved ones due to the pandemic, why not gather everyone together and play a game of ‘Lunar New Year’ themed monopoly?
Instead of the usual hat, ship, dog, and other tokens you would find in the original Monopoly set, this one is replaced with golden tangerines, a lion head, a bull, a firecracker, a gold ingot, and a lantern.
The rules of the game are slightly different from the original. Instead of buying properties, players would buy shops, collect gifts, and find some good fortune to win. Bringing in all the ‘ong’ that you would need!
