TRTC has collaborated with the Guandu Temple for the first time to unveil the God of Wealth Fortune Money theme ticket on January 16. The tickets will be on sale via 3 customized automatic ticket vending machines at the MRT Guandu Station. 30,000 tickets for each of the 3 limited edition theme tickets will be issued (each vending machine sells one type of ticket), so hurry up if you wish to be blessed with good fortune. The colors of the tickets have been meticulously chosen: propitious red is used for the word Wealth at the center of the round ticket; the warm, optimistic color orange is applied for the word Fortune; glamorous golden color is chosen for the word Money. The round typeface engenders an endearing, plentiful demeanor that is complemented by the shape of Yuanbao (gold ingot) to accentuate the Chinese New Year’s vibes of peace, prosperity and abundant fortune.
