CNY Survival Guide 2014: 8 videos to secretly watch if you're bored during CNY

There are moments in-between, when the monotony of the routine of visiting begins to leave you feeling restless.

Fret not. Here are eight completely random videos you can secretly watch that will either leave you amused, inspired, or at the very least, occupied during those dull lulls.
