SINGAPORE – There is plenty of opportunity to monkey around when it comes to Chinese New Year greetings in the year of the Monkey.

Some greetings pun on the Chinese pronunciation of “monkey” - “hou”, which sounds the same as “good” in Cantonese.

Others use cute cartoon monkeys to get their message across.

Here's wishing everyone a happy year of the Monkey!
