Mama went to a colleague house for a CNY visit just now. free lunch ma....
i was surprised to see some one sen coins being served in a container amongst the biscuits and tit-bits.
i thought that 'The government has phased out the one sen coins for the over-the-counter (OTC) payments to cut handling costs and effect greater convenience via a rounding mechanism from April 1, 2008. ', and now they are being served for CNY.... he he he...
it was to get rid of the flies (lalat)!!!! this is new to me !!
usually, people would just lit up a some candles
so, next time dont throw away your one sen coins
and i do have a lot at home
