Happy Lunar New Year! ft. Orange & Pineapple Tarts
Potato and friends wish you a prosperous year ahead with lots of good luck and good health!

Happy Lunar New Year from Potato and friends!

The Lunar New Year is widely celebrated here in Singapore and Asia. But regardless of where you come from, we are all potatoes and Potato would like to bless you with good luck and prosperity! May your year ahead be filled with goodness, good health and happiness!

It is a tradition to give and receive red packets with money.

Have you ever wondered how pineapple tarts came to be?

The lucky red underwear was unnecessary, but necessary.

Oranges are VERY busy during the Lunar New Year. (It is a tradition to exchange oranges for red packets) One particular Orange parties way too hard just before the big day every year.

Potato is such a good friend. But that aside, please rate Potato's disguise efforts.

Lastly, Potato would like to share a comic that Potato drew when Life of a Potato just started. The art style has changed over time!

The lion dance is performed to chase away evil spirits (which fear loud noises), hence the performance is always accompanied by the rhythms of drums, gongs and cymbals. The "lion" comprises 2 performers, one at the head and one at the tail. Lion dancers are commonly invited to shops/households/businesses to bring good luck in the year to come.

Looking back at this old comic, we have come a long way since the beginning of Life of a Potato! Fun fact: Do you know that the font used in current comics is a font made from Potato's own handwriting? You can make your own online too!

Potato hopes you enjoyed this newsletter and wishes you a very Happy Lunar New Year! *You have been blessed by the Lucky Potato*
