Don’t Say Bojio: Freebies from Ribena ‘Coz #CNY

I might be no Chinese New Year guru, but even I know this:

It’s pretty darn expensive. 

Just think about it: the goodies are delicious, but aren’t exactly dirt cheap; the decorations look pretty and exquisite enough, but don’t exactly come free.

And perhaps the worst one out of them all, rather ironically, is the ang pows. As children, we loved these red packets. We revered them. But when it was time for us to hand them out…

Thankfully, Ribena has somewhat eased the monetary pains of the festive period…

With attractive promotions and entertaining roadshow activities just for you and me!

There’s really a purple lining to everything, huh?


Now, I’m sure you need no introduction to Ribena.

Pretty much something we all grew up with, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Ribena is a core factor behind many of our happiest childhood memories.

Or at least for me. And it’s not just because Ribena is higher in Vitamin C with no artificial sweetener, colouring & flavouring.

So what’s the commotion all about?

From 28 January to 11 Feb, Ribena will be having Lion Dance Performances in major store outlets!

During the performance, simply purchase a single carton of Ribena (from the 188 cartons available) and you will be entitled to the following benefits:

Make Purple Great Again

Did you know? While red has always been synonymous to good luck and fortune in Lunar New Year, it is not widely known that Purple symbolises the class above the rest – Royalty, Inner healing and Mental Well Being.

And this year, Ribena wants to encourage consumers to include PURPLE in the festive celebrations for greater prosperity while having a modern twist to the traditional red!

‘Coz, you know, 大红大紫, 富贵年. Loosely translated, it means “big red big purple, super rich year”.

Okay, I kid about the translation. It actually infers an abundance of prosperity with purple.

So ditch the colour red, and adopt something new! Because let’s face it; red’s too mainstream anyway.
