Here are the greetings featured in various advertising companies. Some of these messages are meaningful and creative so I decide to compile it here. Note: Most of these are taken from companies that placed advertisements in the year 2012, but the wishes are creative that I have redone some of the images:
My favourite is the one from Nestle- coz it’s really Malaysian (view original ad):
“My unmarried grandchildren get asked this as I hand them their red packets. It’s a polite, old-fashioned way of asking if there’s a suitor in their lives. I eagerly await the day they take my hand and say, ‘yes, this is the last one’. Because then I can ask when there’ll be another delightful great-grandchild in my home.”
The incredible stories that fill our lives are what makes the celebation complete.
Maybank: Those who are not afraid to fall, leap the highest. (view original ad)
Its dance is the heartbeat of the brave; its every jump, a testament to human courage. No wonder the lion dance is a symbol of sucess. From the roar of the drums to the dancers’ gravity-defying leaps, the lion moves the world. We too are constantly moved to scale new heights. Not just for our sake, but for those who helped us leap in the first place. You.
Gong Xi Fa Cai from all 45,000 Maybankers here and abroad.
Honda: There are many things we can discover through one dinner…(view original ad)
… like the great love story of how Grandpa and Grandma met
… told over Mom’s experimental Peking Duck (she claims it’s fusion)
… or that Eldest Sister is expecting another baby- her fifth, to be exact
… while Cousin Brother is still not married yet
… Granduncle’s third daughter has started on a new job (and she’s not married yet either)…
Or perhaps simply, that a reunion is only complete when all in the family are home together.
From all of us at Honda, may the Year of the Dragon bring family from near and far together, to usher in an aspiring new year.
Wherever home may be, we will get you there safely.
Gong Xi Fa Cai.
Petronas: Our names may be different, but our virtues are the same (view original ad):
Like water, we adapt fluidity. Flowly smoothly over bumps and conquering even the roughest terrains. That’s a virtue that has been passed down from our father’s father, and his before that. With this energy, we have bought our ways to places our ancestors would never have dreamt of. This year of the water dragon, let’s celebrate its virtue- adaptability.
Happy Chinese New Year from all at PETRONAS.
Tenaga Nasional: Thank you for the Ang Pow (view original ad):
The Ang Pow has become the more than just a Chinese festive gift or a traditional symbol of good luck. Today, it has been adopted by everyone. It now comes in many colours to symbolise different celebrations. Only a society that can adapt, evolve and share their individual traditions can truly be united.
Happy Chinese New Year to everyone from all of us at Tenaga Nasional.
McDonalds (view original ad)

TM (Telekom Malaysia) : Celebraterwith prosperous New Year with family and friends, no matter where you are. Stay connected and share the good fortune of the Dragon. You’re never too far away from your loved ones with TM.
Sime Darby: Every little detail matters
Every careful turn, every attention to detail is important to create a beautiful work of art- just as precision, strategy, and timing are essential to the development of a company with a heritage as rich as Sime Darby’s. We’ve grown from our humble beginnings in Malacca in 1910 to the country’s largest diversified multi-national based on the hard work and dedication of our 100,000 employees in more than 20 countries. Our success is demonstrated by the fact that more than a 100 years after we were founded in a tiny estate in Malacca, we continue to contribute to the sustainable development of our country and our people.
Wishing all Malaysians a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year.
Digi- Here’s a new way we can wish one another a Happy Year of the Dragon.
Astro: Happiness is best enjoyed together
From our family to yours, have a Happy Dragon New Year
