SINGAPORE – This year marks a fresh cycle in the 12-year Chinese zodiac with the Year of the Rat. In Chinese culture, the rat represents those who are clever, quick-witted and successful, but here in Singapore what comes to mind almost immediately is the rat race many are stuck in. Singapore is often labelled a hard-working, stressed-out nation, and one study conducted in 2019 suggested that 92% of working Singaporeans are stressed – 8% higher than the global average 1,2.
With Chinese New Year just around the corner and work assignments, projects and jobs ramping up, many Singaporeans are at their most stressed. It is precisely for this reason that Jetstar has a special treat for its fans to help them plan their next relaxing trip away from it all. But first, they must find Jetstar’s illusive God of Fortune.
Jetstar’s God of Fortune Activation (18 – 22 Jan)
In the week leading up to Chinese New Year, in the name of good luck and renewed prosperity, Jetstar’s God of Fortune will be making surprise appearances at three distinct locations around Singapore on 18, 20 and 22 Jan. He will bring gifts of fortune, favour and flights for those wise enough to find him.
Three clues pertaining to his location will be released on the Jetstar Asia FB page the day before his appearance at each location, on 17, 19 and 21 Jan respectively. Fans will need to decipher these clues, head down to the right location, and bring him a pair of oranges. In exchange, he will invite fans to choose from a range of mystery Jetstar red packets, which will contain rewards ranging from Jetstar gifts, flight vouchers and free flights to Danang, Taipei and Okinawa!
Vicky Wang, Regional Marketing Manager, Jetstar Asia said: “We understand that many of our fans in Singapore are under a great deal of pressure at work and home, leading to some serious stress. We wanted to usher in the new year by giving them a chance to escape the rat race of 2020 with a short break at some of our most popular, and relaxing destinations!”
