A man walks past a shop selling decorative items for the upcoming Lunar New Year in Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown January 20, 2009. Some shoppers have cut back on buying foodstuffs and decorative items for the Chinese New Year festival this year in order to maintain the same amount of money given out in "red envelopes", or hong baos, as last year. In Chinese society, hong baos are typically given on the first day of the Lunar New Year by those who are married to those unmarried, regardless of age, for good luck. [Agencies]
