Singaporeans celebrate Chinese New Year with 'lucky undies'
Singaporeans are ushering in this year's Lunar New Year with "lucky undies" emblazoned with monkey cartoon characters and traditional red prosperity characters.
The Straits Times newspaper reports that more than 1,000 pairs have been sold since their arrival in Singapore from China in late December.
A red-headed "funky monkey" cartoon character is one of the popular items.
The underwear comes in pink as well as red, with the Chinese characters reading "luck" and "prosperity".
"According to Chinese belief, wearing red underwear, especially in the Year of the Monkey, will bring you luck because some monkeys have red butts," shop owner Jeanette Chong of ButtOn Trendy Undies said.
The underwear starts at 5.90 Singapore dollars.
