【看CP學英文】每逢農曆過年,人人開心回老家拜年,同時也深怕被親戚長輩逼婚、關心有沒有對象,這些關心對許多人來說是種無形的壓力。新加坡文創設計公司WHENIWASFOUR小時候工作室看到人們的困擾,近日推出新年創意口罩,只要戴上它,什麼都不用說,不僅能成功躲掉所有問題,同時也令人會心一笑。 

During the Chinese New Year, everyone is happy to enjoy some quality time with family and friends. Asked whether they have a partner or when they would get married, however, some might feel pressured when bombarded with questions.  

Ahead of the holidays, Singapore’s design company “Wheniwasfour” has launched a creative face mask, which not only can help you dodge all questions but also put a smile on people’s faces.

「小時候工作室」共推出三款過年口罩,每款口罩都印有「恭喜發財」,而下行分別是「我沒有男朋友,我沒有女朋友」、「我還不要結婚」、「我還不要生孩子」。  

The studio launched three New Year’s Eve masks, each with “Happy Chinese New Year” printed in a large font, as well as words: “I don’t have a boyfriend, I don’t have a girlfriend,” “I don’t want to get married yet,” or “I don’t want to have children yet.”
