Adventures of a Lai See Packet
Jan 26-28
ECP Centre in Central
What happens to a Lai See packet after it has carried some lucky money to its recipient? Surely, not all are destined for the dustbin. Some of them might have some mischief up those sleeves while others wander where the wind blows them, waiting to see what exciting things will happen along the way! In this Chinese New Year creative writing and publishing workshop, students ages 10-13 experiment with perspective and anthropomorphism as they weave their tales.
